Umami Records are celebrating their fifth year of operation with a new live showcase series called #UMAMISOUNDS.
Linying, R&B/funk group Astronauts (who launched their debut EP earlier this year) and upcoming rapper Nikhil Senan will perform at the first edition next month at the label's home on Telok Blangah.
#UMAMISOUNDS extends the label's mission to scout for and promote underrated and 'less obvious' musical talent to a wider audience. “We have done [that] over the last four years through the release, distribution and promotion of some great music from this region and beyond," label co-founder Kevin Foo noted in a press release. "2018 will be our first foray in taking that discovery process from the recorded music medium to the live platform through #UMAMISOUNDS.”
#UMAMISOUNDS will take place at 372 Telok Blangah Rd Singapore 098836 on Friday, 3 August at 7.30pm. Tickets priced at S$22 (inclusive of one beer) are available now here.
