The Wataniya (Maldives) Anniversary Dinner was held on 6th March 2011. The dinner was in an “ice” themed hall, that featured an awards ceremony, debut of Rhythm In Peace (RIP) – a vocal duo, a DJ, Haisham’s trio, video messages and presentations.
I should note here that RIP was unheard of, prior to this event. However, they performed quite well, considering it was their debut performance. They performed their original tracks to well choreographed dance routines, and their vocals were live. Bravo! for a good start.
Live / Tour Sound Company: Island Music, Maldives.
Team: Ammi, Hambe, Kudoo, Mahin and I
