Ramli says the concert is a journey about the history of the band. He adds that it is about remembering the steps all the way, from the positive to the negative as well as the music that kept them united.

He was the band’s producer 30 years ago and he was vital in developing Lefthanded, according to the band’s guitarist, Rahman Mahmood (also known as Man Kidal).

One of Lefthanded’s inspiration is Ramli’s band Sweet Charity.
