On May 28th 2011 the Malaysia Tourism Centre or MaTiC brought back old school in a new way with the ever so funky Urban Beats @ Lanai MaTiC 2011. Urban Beats @ Lanai MaTiC 2011 is a youth oriented program showcasing the culture (arts & music) of today’s youth generation inspired by the urbanization of Kuala Lumpur. This event’s idea was to encourage the participation of youth in the tourism related activities and it did just that with a hundred youths joined in an enjoyed performances from local talents such as;
Then there’s the special performance by Wakaka Crew & Giler Battle Crew. Not forgetting the Graffiti Demo by Sona One, Bone & Blob. MC Vandal led a Hip Hop Workshop which provided an insight on Hip Hop Culture such as Graffiti, DJ-ing, MC, beat making & the music industry. MC Vandal also led the MC Battle in which winners won goodie bags with loads of cool merchandise. I was told that Urban Beats @ Lanai MaTiC will be an annual event from now on that provides a positive & constructive platforms for youths. Enjoy pictures of the event below, courtesy of MaTiC.
