Penang, 10th November 2012:- Yunalis Zaraai, also known as Yuna is an independent Malaysian singer-songwriter. She began writing her own songs when she was 14 years old, and had her first performance of her own songs at the age of 19, after she learned how to play the guitar. She has performed in numerous acoustic shows and events in many parts of Malaysia since 2006.
Yuna was eventually discovered in the US by the Indie-Pop record label and management company. They flew out to Malaysia to convince her to sign with them and then proceeded to ger her a deal with FADER Label, a record label based in New York, in February 2011. She released her debut album, Decorate, in the US in March the same year.
Her first stop back home for the Yuna's Homecoming Concert, here in Malaysia, is of course the lovely state of Penang, fans of hers gathered at Penang Times Square as early as 5pm to wait for the lovely lady as they were drenched under the rain of course with their ponchos on.. The organiser also prepared us some cute little cupcakes, puffs and desserts for the media.The rain kept pouring till 7pm..when the first opening act of the night, Kyoto Protocol, came to warm up the crowd with hits such as "Never Know", "Gimme Nothing" and much more..
Kyoto Protocol is a Malaysian alternative rock band from Kuala Lumpur. Formed in 2008. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Fuad Alhabshi, back-up vocalist cum keyboard player Gael Olivere, guitarist Hairi Haneefa, back-up vocalist cum bassist Shakeil Bashir, and drummer Shanjeev Reddy.
The crowd were then warmed down by Diandra Arjunaidi with a couple of her hits.. "Angkasa", "Remember", "Serba Salah" and many more.. She's a local singer who was discovered through YouTube. The social networking site gave a kick start to her singer-songwriter career leading her to become the first artist to be signed with Yuna Room Records.
At 9pm, it was time to make way for the one and only Yuna..as she kicked off the show with her opening song "Gadis Semasa", followed by her other hit singles, "Island", "Cinta Sempurna", "Decorate", "Live Your Life", "Terukir Di Bintang" and more.. She also interacted a lot with her fans, as they sing along to her songs while she plays the guitar and ukelele.. She ended the night with "Dan Sebenarnya"..
After Penang, she also hit the stage at the Sarawak Cultural Village in Kuching, on the 13th of November 2012 with opening acts Pearl & Randall as well as Kaban Ka'au.
I had fun as it was the first time ever I got the chance to watch Yuna live.
Special thanks to the organiser, Talent Harvest Agency for the passes as well as the hospitality.
