Rainforest World Music Festival 2008 - The Concert

Around 7.30 p.m. the show started. I was trying to keep my feet dry - away from the mud, but later on, caught in the heat of the music and trying to get better shots I had to just jump in !

The mud - actually a few inches of sand, wasn't too bad. It was dry at first, but as the night wore on, being trampled by thousands of feet, it become more and more muddy. And it was smelly too ! After a while all that was forgotten as everyone there - all 9,000 of them, were determined to have fun mud or no mud.

The first group to come on stage was local favourite Kani'd. Kani'd is made up of a few very good looking Kelabit sisters and cousins. They play ethnic fusion - a blend of Sarawakian ethnic music and rock. Their version of a Kelabit rock song brought the house down.
