Part I: Syafiqah 'Adha Sallehin & Nabillah Jalal
Accordion & Piano Recital Aside from composing, Syafiqah 'Adha Sallehin will showcase her talent: that of a virtuoso accordionist! Teaming up with pianist Nabillah Jalal, the duo promises to charm audiences with a unique repertoire. The concert is bound to show off a multitude of traditional colours!

Part II: Syafiqah 'Adha Sallehin featuring Bhumi Collective
A story of good triumphing over evil, the story of Ikan Girl reminds one of patience and kindness and the perils of engaging in evil acts especially the mistreatment of a fellow being. Inspired by a Malay ancient poem known as the Syair Bidasari, this story will be presented in the form of a multidisciplinary performance that incorporates movement vocabulary from Malay dance, bharatanatyam and contemporary dance genres. It will also feature original music composed collaboratively and performed 'live' by classical and traditional musicians.
