Local artistes rally to help flood victims


A group of homegrown artistes, including MonoloQue and Da Vagabonds, will take to the stage for flood benefit gig.

 

ALL it took was a few phone calls and a list of good friends in the music scene to throw their weight around the #DermaKilat fund-raising concert (in aid of the Pahang flood victioms) at the TM Convention Centre, Menara TM, Jalan Pantai Baru in Kuala Lumpur this Sunday.

MonoloQue main man loQue isn’t somebody to take full credit for this spontaneous concert initiative, but he has his heart in the right place to see this charity project through.

Apart from MonoloQue, the #DermaKilat charity show also features indie rock outfits Go Gerila!, OAG, Da Vagabonds, rapper Altimet and pop singer Ana Raffali.

He approached each artiste and band earlier this week about getting involved in this show, and all of them agreed immediately to lend support.

“We wanted to contribute something different, contributing in the way we know best,” says loQue.

“Though the amount we are collecting might not be a huge sum but we are planning to share the aspirations of sharing and giving. Apart from the main aim of delivering aid at a critical time, we also hope to inspire people to put aside any differences in their political views and to roll up their sleeves and help,” he adds.

More acts (or guests) might be added to the line-up. All profits from the #DermaKilat show will be forwarded to the flood victims in Pahang through the Tengku Puan Pahang Foundation.

#DermaKilat starts at 5pm this Sunday at the TM Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur. Entrance: A donation of RM20 will get one admission pass. For more concert and donation details, watch the #DermaKilat video on YouTube.
