It all started with the criminal genius known as “The Professor” and his recruits who possessed exceptional skills and had nothing to lose. With its red jumpsuits and masks in hand, the Spanish heist drama has taken over the world. We’re nearing the end of the global sensation, when Money Heist Part 5: Volume 1 returns on September 3, 2021, for the grand climax to history’s greatest heist. La banda has returned.
As the series enters its fifth and final season, local musicians Shaun Vinda and Vishal Chopra bid farewell to the series with their own interpretation of the hymn ‘Bella Ciao,’ which translates to “Beautiful Goodbye.”
Shaun Vinda is a rising musician noted for his lively and percussive mixes featuring the tabla, a North Indian instrument. You may recognise him from his unique social media videos in which he sings and demonstrates his outstanding drumming abilities. He was one of the top three winners at the recent grand finale of the Harvinth Skin Fans’ Show.
Vishal Chopra, a 19-year-old Penangite, is another exceptional musician who received international fame when he represented Malaysia in the 2018 World Championships of Performing Arts competition held in Hollywood. With an electric guitar in hand, he won three gold medals, one silver medal, and the title of “World Champion” in the instrumental category. He is a multi-talented teen as he also plays the drums, bass, and acoustic guitar.
Psst… something interesting is coming to our Bandar, so keep your eyes opened for a sparkling surprise at Bangunan Getah Asli (Menara) (opposite KLCC) from 3 September onwards. All La Banda kat Bandar updates can be found on Netflix Malaysia’s Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter sites.
