“We are grateful and proud to be in a collaboration with a prestigious regional music festival such as HKAMF to make KL Jamm a success this year. We look forward to further strengthen this collaboration with the involvement of more regional artistes especially for the APEX (Asia Pacific Music Exchange) stage, which will be a platform to promote the upcoming artistes in the Asia Pacific region,” said Dato’ Norman Abdul Halim, Festival Director of KL Jamm.
Ricky Fung, a representative of HKAMF, said “There has been long collaboration between the Malaysian music industry and HKAMF. We are excited to see KL JAMM’s emergence to driving the same course in advancing ASIAN recorded music and live entertainment. There are enough music talents around. We are proud to have KL JAMM inviting J.Arie to bring Malaysian popular music a cross flow with Hong Kong’s. Collectively, we may be looking at the next ASIAN Music wave. It may come sooner if more of us are joining together.”
“It is my greatest honor to be here in Kuala Lumpur as the Ambassador of HKAMF. In reminiscence of the experience of being crowned the 2014 Asian supernova, I look forward to participating in more music exchange programs with Malaysia and other Asian countries now and in the future, so as to unite and sublimate the diversified cultures among Asians. ” said J.Arie.
KL Jamm Music Festival is not solely concerts, but also a platform for global music-and digital related trade. MUI announced the launch of MusicXpo (Market & Exhibition), Forumuzik (symposium), as well as exciting stage performances on the APEX Stage, which is co-organized by Global Creative & Media Agency (GCMA), an established global agency specializing in public relations and marketing of major media entertainment festivals such as Midem Music Festival and the recently concluded Asian Television Awards.
According to Adam Ham, Chief Executive Officer of GCMA, “Realizing the export value of music and relevant industries valued at RM 5.85 billion in 2017 (Source: PriceWaterhouseCoopers), it was timely that KL Jamm’s MusicXpo is organized to be able to create business opportunities for the digital economy. Herewith, we are confident that many different industries will find a value-added opportunity for the commercialization of the digital convergence, such as music tourism, telecommunication & infrastructure, technical support, hospitality, food & beverage and transportation.”
