Rojak... Celebrating Diversity, ChildAid Asia Musical Concert
The Budimas Charitable Foundation and Suntory Beverage & Food Asia Pte Ltd are proud to be supporting the 6 th edition of the ChildAid Asia Kuala Lumpur’s (CAAKL) Concert series that will take place on the 25 th and 26 th of August 2018 at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) with a truly fascinating theme this year, “Rojak…Celebrating Diversity”. The announcement of ticket sales and unveiling of the concert poster took place today at Studio 5, KLPAC. Similar to the years before, the annual fundraising concert strives to touch the lives of underprivileged children by uniting talented youths from Singapore, Japan, Indonesia and Malaysia to raise funds for economically disadvantaged children whilst showcasing their skills.
With a theme that exudes the definition of unity, Rojak will be celebrating diversity with a combination of music, singing and dance from various genres and cultures, proving that when people come together, they can move mountains and in this case, children making a change in the lives of other children in need. The concert is also designed to get young minds to work together and learn from one another. They also benefit from the sense of togetherness and friendships that are forged in the process.
This year, The Budimas Charitable Foundation supports all the efforts of ChildAid Asia Kuala Lumpur by provisioning in various ways. “We as a non-profit that aids underprivileged children believes that every child deserves equal opportunities in life and we are here to make it more attainable for them. ChildAid Asia’s efforts are brilliant as they are able to provide a platform for musical talented children as well as those that have interest in performing arts the opportunity to develop their talent which will be valuable for their future,” said Anne Rajasaikaran, Principal Officer of The Budimas Charitable Foundation.
CAAKL has also managed to form the ChildAid Asia Band (CAA Band) where this year it is expanded at the helm of an experienced musician to develop an enhanced platform for the beneficiaries. Besides that, CAAKL is collaborating with Mahavidya Dance Theatre which enables more young underprivileged and aspiring dancers to learn Bharanatyam as well as applying them with other music genres. Another collaboration which is with Yi Xiang Ler Chinese Musical Centre also creates an opportunity for the less fortunate children to learn Chinese classical musical Instruments.
Rockschool International, the international popular music organisation also came forward to show their support via special concessions and programmes for the less fortunate children. “Many generations in Malaysia grew up with BRAND’S® and Ribena® products and we are pleased to have helped bring happiness and wellness into our consumers' lives. It is with the support of our consumers that we are able to work with CAAKL and be one step closer to achieving our corporate vision of ‘Growing for Good’. Our dedication to giving back to society goes hand-in-hand with CAAKL’s efforts in grooming a new generation of artistic talent. Much like this year’s theme ‘Rojak’, the exposure to and collaboration of different cultures at CAAKL also helps the children build up their communication skills and in turn strengthen their confidence, be it on or off-stage. We could not be more proud to make a positive impact on these young talents,” said Mr Kazuhiro Saito, Chief Executive Officer of SBFA.
“We are truly humbled by the support we’ve gotten from various organisations today which has proven that the performing arts truly help children build self-confidence, express themselves, enhance their communication skill as well as provide an opportunity for them to use their skills and make a career out of it or even give back to the community,” expressed Ralph Lim, Founder of ChilAid Asia Kuala Lumpur.
