Kandima Maldives holds competition to curate beachside music scene
Kandima Maldives has announced its very first ‘Music Boss Wanted!’ competition where music writers, producers, singers and DJs can submit their video content in hopes of winning an amazing USD 7,000 cash prize and a fully paid holiday to the new island destination.
Initially, music producers are asked to upload a short video of themselves singing, playing a musical instrument or DJing to Instagram or Facebook using the resort’s unique hashtags #KandimaMusic and #KMusicBoss, which must be completed before July 31. Following this, the Kandima Krew will listen, rate and evaluate the applications, narrowing them down to a top 10.
After August 7, the top 10 video submissions will be uploaded to Kandima Maldives’ blog, which will be followed by the project winner announcement on August 21. The finalist will be required to create original eight tracks, which will be officially launched during the resort’s grand launch of its new Pool Party series on November 15. The tracks will also be played on Kandima’s shuttle buses, in all the rooms upon check-in, and during Kandima’s promotional events nationally and internationally.
Simultaneously, music lovers and applicants will be able to share music through social media, while interacting with others, rating the music and building playlists. Kandima will create an active digital music community where music lovers can be taken on a genre-mixing journey of discovery.
“The idea behind this project is to create an accessible and fair opportunity to win a fun life-changing project covering all music genres and providing an opportunity to platform unsigned talent, and salute aims to launch music careers for both young and mature artists. It is a win-win opportunity for both music producers and Kandima Maldives,” Anna Karas, the resort’s Director of Marketing Communication and PR, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
Located on a lush tropical island in Dhaalu Atoll, Kandima offers a choice of 272 stylishly designed studios and villas, with 11 different categories to choose from, all of which have a private terrace and endless tropical views to enjoy.
The four-star plus resort, which opened early this year, has first class infrastructure, boasting the largest pool in the Maldives, tennis courts, an art studio, a marine biology school, a kids club, a game room, a library, a gym, a yoga studio and a spa. There is plenty to keep everyone occupied and the array of activities and events on offer is endless, including a huge choice of watersports, diving or snorkelling near the house reef, yoga, Zumba, bicycles, beach volleyball, petanque, arts and crafts lessons, and much more.
The island also offers one of the largest selection of F&B outlets in the country, with an incredible choice of ten restaurants and bars, all featuring unique and individual menus offering flavours of the world from Chinese and Japanese to authentic Maldivian and Mediterranean. So be it tropical or traditional, Kandima has something to suit everyone’s tastes.
