LONELY PLANET Six Degrees KUALA LUMPUR DVD NEW

LONELY PLANET: SIX DEGREES Kuala Lumpur

Charismatic musician and sound engineer Reshmonu takes presenter Asha Gill on a sonic tour of Kuala Lumpur to

capture the city's ambient sounds and turn them into song. The bilal's call, the national anthem, Tamil rappers and a

monsoon thunderstorm are just the start, and when a nervous Asha adds her own vocal harmonies to the mix, Resh

creates a KL urban soundtrack as a memento of her visit. Rock climber Yuen Li gets Asha to face her fear of heights on

the vertical limestone cliffs of KL's Batu Caves and calms her down in a hotspring in a monsoonal downpour. Night creature

and comedienne Joanne Kam Poh Poh gives Asha the lowdown on the city after dark, from ancient Aboriginal music to

rocking Bangsar clubs. Wedding planner Stephen Foong prepares Asha for an old friend's Malay wedding, and invites her

to a tea ceremony to see how couples tie the knot Chinese-style. Asha gets a taste of the high life at Alyssa's country

estate, learns the ABC of polo and is serenaded goodbye with exquisite acapella harmonies. Alyssa's friend Ida cajoles

Asha into appearing in her sitcom All About Love. Asha gets a behind-the-scenes look at Malaysian television when she

plays jilted Venezuela beauty queen Esperanza de la Cruz. KL's number one spookster Francis Nantha reveals the city's

spiritual side with a few well chosen ghost stories in a Chinese cemetery at midnight.
