For two nights only, CausewayEXchange and Timbre @ The Arts House presented Serenade Malaysia - All Stars to the public with the hottest R&B artistes from Malaysia to Singapore.

Diners basked in the soulful tunes of Anha San (a regular with the Malaysian underground music scene with bands such as Oddstars and The Otherside Orchestra), Andi A. Merican (nominee for the Smoothest R&B Act at the Voice Independent Music Awards [VIMA] 2010), Marsha Londoh (whose powerful strains of jazz vibrated through the night) and Nabil Zamanhuri, one of Malaysia’s youngest artist who definitely pulled at the heartstrings of many with his delicate love ballads. Everybody enjoyed all this while soaking in the nightlife along the Singapore River.
