Over the weekend the third edition of Sing Jazz took place at Marina Bay Sands. And thanks to Marina Bay Sands, here’s a look back at some of the best moments from the Singapore Jazz Festival 2016!
Always looking for a way to give back, Joss Stone took time out of her schedule to meet youth from arts training centre 10 Square at the ArtScience Museum earlier today. After inspiring youth by sharing her professional journey in the music industry, Joss was herself surprised by an aspiring singer in the audience who performed Joss’s own version of “Teardrops” to her.
Meanwhile, Hiatus Kaiyote, Incognito and Darker Than Wax showcased their creativity in the kitchen as they put their hands together to prepare lunch for themselves. The session was organised by Guvera at Culinary On, and saw the artists learning about the spices behind chilli crab and whipping technique to pandan chiffon cake.
Day two of Sing Jazz kicked off with a trio of Singapore-based acts The Good Life Project feat Vandetta, Tim De Cotta & Jeremy Monteiro feat. Tina May.
Incognito then took the stage with their electrifying set that led to Vadim Eilenkrig’s smooth jazz. Candy Dulfer saxed things up with her upbeat performance before Grammy award-winner and powerhouse Joss Stone rounded off the evening on a soulful note.
Day 3 of Sing Jazz kicked off with local acts Mediocre Haircut Crew and Fauxe collaborating, followed by Tribal Tide. Italian maestro Enrico Rava then took the stage before the highly anticipated Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, who are here as part of their Adios Tour, brought everyone to their feet at dusk. Multi-instrumentalist Hector Infanzon showed his versatility, pacing the mood for Level 42’s jazz funk beneath the night lights of Marina Bay Sands.
Sing Jazz 2016 was closed by Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, who produced a inimitable performance; the perfect fit to end the vibrant weekend.
