An Exclusive Evening with Sheila Majid at the oldest Rainforest in the World ~ Sheila Live @ Belum Rainforest Resort

Hello readers ..

On 29 April 2017, fans of one of Malaysia’s most beloved icons, Sheila Majid, will have the privilege of being the first few to experience a showcase featuring songs from her latest album live at Belum Rainforest Resort in Pulau Banding, Perak.  The exclusive evening with the songbird will be held in an intimate setting at the resort, against the natural backdrop of one of the world’s oldest rainforests.

The resort is surrounded by the Belum-Temengor Tropical Rainforest Complex, measuring four times the size of Singapore – carbon-dated to be approximately 130 million years old – older than the Amazon and Congo.

Besides providing a treat for all Sheila Majid fans, the showcase also aims to highlight the importance of environmental conservation, a cause deeply ingrained into the corporate DNA of Belum Conservation, as well as the Pulau Banding Foundation, which was set up to preserve and protect its natural surroundings.

The announcement of the showcase and initiative was made today in a press conference attended by Sheila herself, as well as Ahmad Khalif bin Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal, Executive Director of Belum Conservation and Dato’ Dr. Abdul Rashid Malik, Chief Executive Officer of the Pulau Banding Foundation.

Pulau Banding Foundation is a non-profit and non-political organisation which promotes research and eco-tourism through the sustainable development of the rainforest ecosystem of the Belum-Temengor Rainforest Complex. A portion of the proceeds garnered from the showcase will be channelled towards the foundation.

According to Ahmad Khalif bin Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal, Executive Director of Belum Conservation, “Malaysia’s tiger numbers have plummeted from 500 in 2003 to an all-time low of about 250-340 in 2014. In 2015 the Malayan tiger was re-classified from “Critically Endangered” from “Endangered” within IUCN’s Red List of Threatened Species. We at Belum Conservation would like to see Belum-Temengor still be in existence not only in our lifetime or our children’s, but for generations to come.  This mission of ours can only succeed when more people understand the urgency of why it needs to be protected – starting today.”

Sheila Majid, during the Press Conference said that “It is truly a privilege for me to work together with Belum Conservation and the Pulau Banding Foundation towards their noble efforts of promoting environmental conservation. Indeed, the Belum Rainforest Resort presents a breath-taking venue for this unique initiative, and I couldn’t think of a better way to introduce my latest album to the world right here,”

Ever since making her debut in 1985 with her album Dimensi Baru, Sheila Majid has evolved into an illustrious career, making her mark not only in Asia but around the world as well, with a series of international firsts. In 1990, she was the first Malaysian artist to break into Japan with her albums Emosi and Warna, as well with her hugely popular single, Sinaran. Six years later, she made history again by becoming the first Malaysian artist to stage a solo show in London’s famed West End, at the Royalty Theatre. In December 1996, she accepted an invitation to perform at Ronnie Scotts’, the jazz Mecca of the Music world.

With this showcase at Belum Rainforest Resort, Sheila will create another first by holding her first performance within a rainforest setting.

Have you been to the Belum Rainforest? I have been there many years ago. At that time, the place was still very pure, there was no internet line with a limited telephone line coverage. 

We cycled during the day and went for Night Trekking at night. We visited the Orang Asli 'kampung' and we found rafflesia during the jungle exploration trip. It was such a wonderful experience.

If you have not seen the beautiful Belum Rainforest, this is your great opportunity to to witness this unique and unprecedented with the accompany of our Queen of Jazz, Sheila Majid.
