As we had just reported with much excitement, the Esplanade's Mosaic Music series is making a return this year with the Mosaic Music Weekend scheduled to be held on the 1st to the 4th of September this year.
Having always remained true to their purpose of exposing locals to new and exciting acts, the artists line-up for the four-day affair announced earlier today is unsurprisingly a diverse blend of local and international acts. Encouraging the exploration of genres like electronic, folk, indie, jazz, pop and rock, expect a mish-mash of vibes along with the likely discovery of new artists you'd never have expected to like.
The weekend highlights include Japanese jazz pianist Hiromi, who returns to perform in the Esplanade Concert Hall with her critically acclaimed The Trio Project, which will also feature Grammy-nominated bassist Anthony Jackson as well as renowned drummer Simon Phillips, local acts as jazz vocalist Alemay Fernandez with her recently released debut album, The Observatory's Leslie Low, rock n' rollers Cheating Sons, tech-metal trio T-REX, singer-songwriters LEW and DEON, ambient folk project Piblokto and veteran live looping musician Randolf Arriola.
The line-up will also see famed Irish singer-songwriter Lisa Hannigan and UK baroque pop mastermind Patrick Wolf performing a double bill in Singapore for the first time, young indie pop band Oh, Flamingo! from The Philippines, and Korean electro-pop outfit Idiotape.
Tickets are on sale on the 28th of July, so stay tuned for the full line-up details and check back at the Mosaic site real soon.
