In Ipoh, normally, only two shopping malls have events lined up for Christmas; Kinta City and Ipoh Parade. While Kinta City has already started Christmas celebrations, Ipoh Parade will only start on 23rd December, 2010.

Last Saturday and Sunday evening saw me making my way to Kinta City to catch the 8pm shows. As you can see from the Jusco Kinta City Shopping Centre Christmas Event programme below, I managed to watch “Christmas Carols & Instrumental” and “Juvenile Latin & Christmas Dance”.

The “Christmas Carols & Instrumental” event on Saturday evening was a performance by Tradimode, a musical group from SM Convent, Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia, consisting of a band, choir and dancers, blending traditional and modern musical instruments. I stayed on for the full 30 minutes of the show but it wasn’t a very entertaining set because most of the performers were not enthusiastic about their own show and some looked as if they were forced to be on stage. You can judge for yourself in these seven videos below that I have shot and compiled.

“Juvenile Latin & Christmas Dance” is obviously a dance performance by children; the word “juvenile” doesn’t have a good ring to it. The dances were quite enjoyable although the Christmas dances were very childish. The Latin dancers are older and gave good performances. Perhaps it’s just the general “feel good” air that Latin music gives.

In any case, watch this video that I shot. Enjoy!
