KUCHING, Oct 10: The decision made by singer-songwriter Yunalis Mat Zara’ai, better known as Yuna, to sing in Kuching on Oct 27 as part of her ‘Yuna Asia Tour’ will see her continuing to stamp her mark in Malaysia, especially the Borneo region.
Going against the grain by not choosing Kuala Lumpur for her major concert, organisers RK LiveAsia and Icon Entertainment are confident that the show, to be held at Hikmah Exchange here, would receive strong response, thanks to the powerful image and hold that Yuna has on the local music scene here.
“This is Yuna, as a special woman with a big heart who takes her craft to every corner of the world, we believe Kuching will witness an incredible performance by her,” the concert organisers said in a statement.
In addition to Kuching, the ‘Yuna Asia Tour’ will also be held in Tokyo on Oct 16 and in Singapore on Oct 18.
The ‘Yuna Asia Tour’ in Kuching is expected to create memorable moments between Yuna and her fans, who had missed seeing her perform on stage of late in Malaysia.
After several years of being active in the music industry, the Perlis-born artiste who also holds a law degree, has enjoyed many great moments in her musical collaboration with several famous figures like Usher and Jay Park.
The Kuching concert, which is deemed apt with the launch of her fifth album, ‘Y5’, Yuna is also ready to meet her fans in Malaysia who have always supported her music career, from the days of having her music uploaded to MySpace until being “taken under the wings” of well-known international composer David Foster to be placed under the Verve Music Group.
The 37-year-old singer will sing her hit songs, both in English and Malay, like Hello, Lullabies, ‘Dan Sebenarnya’ and her latest single, ‘Masih Sunyi’.
