Music Performance: Shili & Adi

Shili & Adi (Band) – Known for fresh piano arrangements, smooth vocal harmony and unmistakable chemistry, ShiLi & Adi has emerged as one of the top vocal duo in the industry. Their versality is shown either in a two-piece acoustic setting, going back to basics with a stripped down arrangement of just vocals and a keyboard, or backed by their spunky band, crooning fun, romantic, and show-stopping tunes with an eclectic and dynamic mix of music from chart-topping hits to classics by legends Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra, always giving an eargasmic treat to audiences.
