The Story of “Akar vs Kukubesi”
Assalamualaikum all. Saturday and Sunday was a non working day for me..Quite a rare free weekend…So me and wifey decided not to go anywhere during the hot day and spend time at home doing nothing. Just finishing marathon of CSI: NY season 7 hehehe.
Saturday was the day Akar stage its monthly event. Akar is a platform for young artist and musicians to perform in front of about 100+ audience. Shah Alam Lake Garden is the usual spot. For those following my blog since my fotopages days must remember I regularly go and shoot at the predecessor of Akar that is Layar Tanchap.
For this edition, Akar collaborated with Kukubesi. A name very famous in the local photographic and manipulation scene. His website is http://www.kukubesi.com I’m sure a lot of people had seen his artwork without realizing it. He is the one behind Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa Movie poster.
A lot of happening and fantastic photographers also participated in the exhibition. Including Amri Ginang, Che’ Mat, Kukubesi himself, Annas Easkey, Kabir Malek, Subhi Karim and lots more.
Not only singers and musicians perform, poets also graced the spartan stage (complete with live Twitter coverage beamed through LCD Projector).
Fynn Jamal is a regular at Akar. And her performance is 5 star..as usual. Others includes Otam, Wani Ardy and Azfar Alias.
Friends from every corner of Malaysia came to give support. Mike Murano, Blacks (Penang) and Apai (Melaka). Not to forget, Anan Amri, Azrie Nasrie (Kulim), Mayonz, Che’ Mat and lots more
