Being a woman is tough, and we get that. When we look at how far we’ve come as a society, it’s fascinating. Women are brave enough to decide on their own future and take things into their own hands. With equality being a movement where women are the main force toward such social reforms, we see public figures (Justin Trudeau and Emma Watson to name a few) from around the world who have jumped onto the bandwagon, showing their support.
So, let’s take a second to appreciate all the women in our lives. In the events industry, we see so many women who have taken charge and become experts in what they do. Here are some ladies we got in touch with who would make your event THAT much better.
Mandana Bakhshy, dancer, teacher and choreographer has been performing middle eastern dance since her mother, Nanccy Bakhshy made it widely popular in Malaysia almost 13 years ago. Being a belly dancer has its fair share of challenges as some people don’t appreciate it as an art, and Mandana is here to change that common misconception of it being just a ‘beautiful girl in a sexy costume’ dance. It is far more than that, it is a performance art and only a few can master it well. If you’re looking to learn the trick of the trade – Mandana offers classes at Middle East Dance Academy or you may want to get in touch with Mandana here to perform at one of your events.

This female quartet plays electro-acoustic music and features 4 very talented young ladies: Frances on Vocals, Ashley on Cajon, Grace on Keyboard, and Melissa on guitar. They started off as a band playing for extra pocket money and along the way, they were encouraged to make their own music. Although each of them is inspired by different genres, they found a common ground which resonates well with them while still incorporating their own individual styles. These ladies have performed for IndiePG, Fete De La Musique, and TimeOut KL Poolside Fiesta to name a few. Interested in catching one of their gigs? Stalk them here.
Women…what can we say 🙂
