Following that, ELIXIR kept the mood pretty on the centre stage, continuing their good work from Friday night, while Labuan’s SPICE OF TONES set up on to the main stage. The Lau brothers Peter (drums) and Simon (bass) brought with them guitarist Mohd Hasyim aka Kici, gambus player Sidi Yusof, and singer sisters Genie and Gabry. Peter was particularly proud of these sisters, and cited them as an example of the band working well as a team. “Two years ago, they were just in the audience, and now they perform on stage! They’ve been working very hard. In teamwork we push them very hard, and if we work together, then definitely we can succeed!”

They played a set starting with the catchy number “Zapin Blues” by Farid Ali, then a selection of gentle Bossa Novas, which made a nice setting for Genie and Gabry to showcase their pretty voices in harmony. Stick with it, girls. You’ve sure got some good teachers in your team.
