On a harmonium with a choir of 200 sheep and performer Tony Yap, singer- songwriter Kavisha Mazzella wowed audiences with her refugee anthem All God’s Beggars, she was joined by other former collaborators Soong Ro Ger, Frank Tagliabue, Trevor Flinn, Anthony Pelchen and Robert Millar, inspired by Roger’s 2012 Malaysian raft odyssey into an endangered rainforest with his cousin Andy Lim Kah Meng.

Glen Marsden brought in the Mexican Cantina, complete with a genuine Mariachi band that played several times, leaving people exhausted from dancing.
