MUSICAL shows are a dime a dozen, and rarely does one become a standalone individual, engaging art form on its own, on par with the performances showcased.
Then along came Mujik Productions. With director, sultry crooner Atilia Haron heading the outfit she co-founded in 2006, live music offerings have taken on a whole new form.
There was the successful Malam Nada Biru series, which offered a stripped down series of artiste performances in an intimate setting.
And now Mujik, with Atilia helming the project as executive producer and along with B'Sync's Adam Sofian Mazlan as show director, comes Acoustic Nights series.
Inspired by the "Live from Abbey Road" produced by Michael Gleason, which featured musicians from various genres, Acoustic Nights however is a simple, yet rich experience that was recorded with a live audience at KLPac's Pentas 1.
Combining a diverse range of performers which includes Aizat, Zainal Abidin, Pesawat, Bittersweet, Adibah Noor and Atilia herself - the show was packed on all three nights, where two acts took to stage each time.
With airing dates over Astro not announced yet, Acoustic Nights, however will take to stage again in March for a continuation of the series that will offer an intimate setting that rids performers of the usual smoke and mirrors and offers only the undeniable talents showcased.
Acoustic Nights, according to Atilia, will showcase six more acts in three more shows. Names shortlisted so far include M. Nasir and MonoLoque, Hujan and Yuna as well as Ning Baizura and Jaclyn Victor.
Although there are no confirmation of the line-up or actual dates so far, one thing for sure is, music lovers now can appreciate Malaysian music how it's supposed to be enjoyed. Simple, stripped and with the spotlight on the raw talents of the gifted.
