URB Band Goes UNPLUGGED on Earth Hour 2019 | Shangri-La Colombo

Candelights made the Earth Hour more romantic

Earth Hour is an annual worldwide event that most establishments and businesses look forward to every year as it has become pretty much more of a commercial event, rather than being an environment awareness for global warming and climate change. But yes, turning off the lights for an hour between 8:30-9:30PM in every timezone all over the world does make a lot of difference. It is a simple proof that a change must start from ourselves to make a huge impact in the effects of global warming.

For us musicians, it's an event which we're excited about as most of us go unplugged and serenade guests in a candlelight setting. Definitely something very different from what we do every night as a sequencer band.

And for the second consecutive year, we were once again part of Shangri-La Hotel Colombo's Earth Hour celebration. For a set, Marlou and I serenaded our guests at Sapphyr Lounge with some standard songs without a mic, with the piano accompaniment of our Sri Lankan pianist Shahen.
