Thee iconic jazz event returns to Singapore for the 5th year with the return of charismatic Jamie Cullum, as well as trance legend Ferry Corsten to add different musical flavours to the festival which has plenty of soul, R&B and funk to boot.
Aside from Jamie Cullum, standouts this year include Grammy-award winning Lauryn Hill. Coming from a small town in South Orange (New Jersey), Lauryn’s talent stood out early growing up, as she managed to effortlessly multi-task between biology, violin lessons and even dance class. But it wasn’t till her 1998 album, “Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” that catapulted her to fame. She will bring to the crowd an electrifying blend of reggae, rock and soul, guaranteed to get you up and jiving.
Closer to home, Weish, MAS1A and Jeremy Monteiro (Jazz Association) are some acts that we’ve bookmarked. As Creative Director of the Singapura Dub Club, multi-lingual MAS1A is a force to be reckoned with, having worked with bigwigs such as Pharrell Williams, Talib Kweli, to name a few. And of course, the godfather of Singapore jazz and Cultural Medallion awardee, Jeremy Monteiro’s orchestra on Sunday is something not to be missed.
