Bridging the Divide Through Music

The A+SEAN concert was part of George Town Festival 2016. Held at the historical Padang Kota, the event featured Malaysian bands and artists such as Datuk Sheila Majid, OAG and SonaOne as well as Penang's very own Dasha Logan, Bizhu and Ocean of Fire. Popular acts from Indonesia such as Nidji, whose single was played as a Manchester United anthem in 2013, and Raisa Ariana also performed on the same stage to musically connect both sides of the straits of Malacca.
