Malaysian Cultural Showcase – Performances by GENIUS Seni & Cultural Frontliners


GENIUS Seni & GENIUS Seni Remaja are nationwide arts education programmes in Malaysia catering to gifted children in the fields of choir, music, and dance. Since their establishment in 2010 and 2015 respectively, these programmes have provided exposure and structured training to talented children, allowing them to develop and enhance their artistic potential and skills. GENIUS Seni is designed for children aged 7-12 (Choir and Dance) and up to 14 years (Music), while GENIUS Seni Remaja targets teenagers aged 13 to 17 years (Choir & Dance) and 15 to 18 years (Music). The programmes aim to foster balanced talent skills and offer recognition through the Malaysian Skills Certificate upon completion. 

Throughout the years, these talented children have showcased their skills both locally and internationally, serving as cultural ambassadors for Malaysia. Their performances not only exhibit the finesse of Malaysia's local talents but also preserve and pass on our heritage, culture, and traditions to the next generation. Take pleasure in experiencing their captivating performances.

Cultural Frontliners 

Cultural Frontliners emerged as an initiative by The Arts and Public Spaces (APS) Impact Area of Yayasan Hasanah during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) implemented to combat the spread of the disease, the arts industry suffered significant financial setbacks, being the first to close and the last to reopen. 

Interestingly, the pandemic witnessed a surge in the consumption of arts through various digital platforms as people remained confined to their homes. Despite the circumstances, arts continued to be appreciated in its diverse forms. During this period, we employed 14 musicians at the MITEC vaccination centre. Following its success the initiative expanded to seven other major vaccination centres nationwide, as well as several smaller centres. They exemplify how the "non-essential" becomes essential, uplifting spirits and spreading joy through their performances.
