KUCHING: Opening night during the Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) was a cacophony of sounds, living up to its billing as a premier music event.

Some of the biggest names in music took centre stage heralding the physical return of the extravaganza after a two-year Covid-19 enforced lull.

People from all over came together to let their hair down, relishing every beat of the most unique music presented on stage, with the tourists dancing to the music.

Ngajat performance by cultural artist from Sarawak Culture Village to welcome the guests on the first day of RMWF 2022.

More than 20 performers performed on the first night, both live and virtual, such as Henry and Alang from Malaysia, Jerry Kamit and Friends from Sarawak, Abigail Washburn from the United States of America, and BluGuru from Australia.

The rainy weather that went on until evening did little to stop everyone from having fun.

The event which started at 6.30pm ended at around 12.30am on a high note, leaving revellers, who by which time were well and truly in the groove, craving for more.
