The recent Tambak Riuh Beraya event in Johor Bahru in Malaysia has been celebrated by cultural organisation, the Arts, Live Festivals and Events Association (ALIFE).

Organised by MyCreative Ventures, a body under the Malaysian Government’s Ministry of Communications, the creative arts festival brought together a range of activities, pop-up stores, workshops and live performances. 

The event served as a celebration of “cultural richness and artistic experience, fostering a spirit of moderation and unity among participants,” according to ALIFE. The event also took place during Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, and helped to usher in the Hari Raya celebrations.

Perhaps most importantly, ALIFE hailed the hosting of live performances during this time, and said: “The association applauds the inclusion of a live concert as part of the Tambak Riuh programme, enabling possibilities of having local and international shows in the future during Ramadan. Johor, renowned for its progressive approach towards hosting events and activities, has once again demonstrated its commitment to fostering cultural vibrancy and community engagement.”

ALIFE added: “The industry eagerly anticipates the ripple effect of Tambak Riuh Beraya, hoping that its success will inspire similar events to be held across different states, further enriching Malaysia’s cultural landscape and promoting unity and joy among its people.”

The event took place from April 5-7.
