The BOH Cameronian Awards celebrates astounding performances of musical theatre, art, music and dances in the previous year. It was founded by an organization called Kakiseni, which is the country's online website dedicated to art, as stated in its name. The awards have been started since 2002, and has been the only award to be supporting art since then!
17th BOH Cameronian Arts Awards 2020 is held this year, more precisely, in Facebook live. It is hosted by Dominic Lucien Luk, the Head of Expressive Arts Department and the Co-Founder of the Monday Show School of Musical Theatre. The awards are distributed according to categories of art which are music, musical theatre, dance and theatre. Many groups were nominated in the category and Gangsapura's Buka Langkah: Inner Resonance was nominated too!
And no one, not even Gangsapura themselves expected:
WE WON THE AWARD!
It is a huge milestone! We are glad that Gangsapura's Buka Langkah: Inner Resonance has moved the hearts of so many. The breathtaking vocals, the amazing instrumental plays, the lively energy- everything is now out there in the open! Perhaps from this point on, more shows will take place? Better? Livelier? But one thing for sure, it will be legendary.
Congratulations, Gangsapura. To another beautiful year!
