EFF2010 - Power Down Show (Sunday)

So you have seen the Saturday schedule yesterday. Today we're back for the schedule for Sunday performance.

As always, each year Eco Film Fest will try to bring new singer-songwriters, bands and performers on its Power Down (formerly known as X-Plugged). Having said that, we still work with bands that have already performed in the earlier installation.

Let's see who's rocking up Sunday!


2.10PM - 2.40PM

Elton & Eileen

This duo started off from being really good friends at the gym to working together for a stage performance for the Nottingham's 316 Music Talent Quest; and they won as the runner-up!

Over time, their friendship is constantly growing stronger through the passion that they have for music and nature. Elton & Eileen aspire to continue working and writing songs together to promote environmental awareness through their songs and the community.

2.40PM - 3.10PM

Wanted Symphony

Wanted Symphony is a 4-piece band that was formed in late 2009 by singer/songwriter/keyboardist Daniel Wong and guitarist Andrew Mok then later drummer David Chua and bassist Aaron Jiam completed the band’s lineup. The band brings together a fusion of sounds, a variety of influences and most definitely a whole lot of fun. Wanted Symphony dabbles in a genre of music they like to call ‘fusion rock’ – with a pinch of jazz thrown in the mix.

Since coming together in October last year, Wanted Symphony has been on an exciting musical journey and has never looked back since. To date, the band has written and arranged approximately eight songs and performs mostly original songs like ‘You Will Be Mine’, ‘Promise’ and jazzy tunes such as ‘Midnight Chatter’ and ‘Just You and Me’ have garnered much positive feedback.

3.20PM - 3.50PM

Izzy Mohamed

Izzy is no stranger to Eco Film Fest, as she performed during the first EFF2008. This year she will be doing what she does best; rocking EFF2010! With influences from Sarah Mclachlan, John Mayer, Sara Bareilles, Rachael Yamagata, Alicia Keys, Usher and the list goes on and on, Izzy definitely is Eco Film Fest's light and easy musician.

3.50PM - 4.20PM

Raman the Nose Flutist

Orang Asal Semai craftsman and musician Raman Bah Tuin has been supporting Eco Film Fest since day one. He performed his cultural music extensively to various events and gained his popularity with his outstanding ability to play flute using nose. The co-founder of Gerai OA (Gerai Orang Asal), Raman will share his special music that will surely brings us back to the sound of the nature.

4.30PM - 5.00PM


Ferns were cultivated a score of years ago in a patch of fertile land. Through natural selection, a little loving care and lots of sunlight, the band evolved into a lean, mean & green pop-song-writing machine. Our first-ever debut album, "On Botany" (2007) made nice enough noises to earn top spots on a number local and foreign publications' year-end Best Ofs.

5.00PM - 5.30PM

Diandra Arjunaidi

Diandra is an eighteen year old bedroom songstress who was discovered on Youtube in November 2009. She landed her first gig that month itself, and played for Moonshine's Fourth Anniversary event at Laundry Bar. Since then, she has been featured on local music webshow, The Wknd Session, and has played numerous other shows at Cloth & Clef, No Black Tie and has been voted to play at Urbanscapes 2010 event.

Diandra is currently in her final year of pursuing a Diploma in Performing Arts in Sunway College, and has been busy juggling between shows in college, and gigs outside of college.

5.40PM - 6.10PM

Markiza & Peter Brown

What else can we say about Markiza & Peter Brown? Their influences came from different types of music such as Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Rolling Stone, Bob Dylan, Cranberries, Neil Young, just to name a few. This happily married couple is one of the seniors in the music industry, and on top of that, they made songs which reflect the environment, nature and the world. Come over to watch they perform their favourite track "Polar Bear".

6.10PM - 6.40PM

DJ Xes! Xes! Loveseat

Lecturer at Limkokwing University by career, DJ by passion. Be it DJing under the punctuated moniker Xes! Xes! or the more romantic sounding Loveseat, his style is usually a mix of different formats and genres. His biggest influences are LCD Soundsystem, Tiga, Miss Kittin, Erol Alkan, Sven Vath, Giorgio Moroder and Kraftwerk.

He likes to be at the cutting edge of the various underground electronic scenes and at the same time always referring to and picking up styles from the history vault of electronic music. Don’t be surprised to listen to a mix set which runs from the 70’s right to the yet to be released. As Loveseat it’s usually very groovy with bags of surprises.

This is also the first time Power Down will be having a DJ to spin some nice tunes, live on stage!
