We’ve previously featured the 10 concerts to go to in the first half of 2016. But now there’s also the Singapore International Jazz Festival bringing in a variety of acts from Mar 4-6 at Marina Bay Sands.
Most excitingly, we’re being paid a visit by some of the surviving members of the Buena Vista Social Club, a loose collective of Cuban musicians who did that son/bolero album in 1996. Also exciting is Grammy Award winning Joss Stone (Mar 5), known for soulful tracks like “Super Duper Love” and “Put Your Hands On Me.” There’s also the relatively young Australian band, Hiatus Kaiyote (Mar 4), who will play neo-soul tracks.
On the local front, DJ collective Darker Than Wax (Mar 4) will be spinning and local musician Charlie Lim will take the stage on Mar 5 with his bluesy, acoustic tunes. If you’re a purist, old faithful Jeremy Monteiro will also be playing on Mar 6.
Check out the full line-up here. Tickets range from $85-$250, depending on if you want a full day pass or a VIP one.
