W Maldives, in partnership with Cercle, the French media company known for filming and broadcasting music performances in some of the world’s most awe-inspiring places, recently hosted an unforgettable live concert at Gaathafushi – the private castaway island, a stone’s throw away from the resort.
The 75-minute set featured a magnificent performance by Berlin-based electronic singer-songwriter Monolink, renowned for combining melodic techno with dreamy guitar-led folk. The island’s pristine white, sandy secluded beach and turquoise lagoon served as the stage.
Cercle organises, films and broadcasts concerts in carefully selected locations around the world and is dedicated to promoting artists, great aesthetics, cultural heritage and nature through the facets of electronic music and video. Amongst the most jaw-dropping musical performances locations filmed included a hot air balloon above Cappadocia, Turkey, the Mont Saint-Michel Island in France and Glacier 3000 in the Swiss Alps.
Gaathafushi Island at W Maldives now joins this list of iconic locations, becoming the first hotel to serve as the site of a Cercle show following the likes of the Eiffel Tower, the Great Pyramids of Giza & Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni.
