Yuna And Ramli Sarip will be feature in MOSAIC 2012 in Singapore

15 Feb

The greatest songs by the artists we love.

Listen as Zul Tania and Cat Ong reflect on soul legend Marvin Gaye’s timeless musical question What’s Going On?. Open your heart as Ramli Sarip invokes passions with a roaring rendition of The Beatles’ With a Little Help from My Friends. Be uplifted as Stacey Kent and Jim Tomlinson consider the beauty around us with Louis Armstrong’s life-affirming What a Wonderful World.

Taking its name from John Lennon’s transcendent song of child-like innocence and honesty, imagine: a soundtrack to peace features iconic classic songs by well-loved troubadours such as Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, U2, and more. Songs that have grown to represent universal truths to many, put together in a poignant narrative that underscores a prevailing message of peace.

Mosaic Music Festival calls upon an inspiring assembly of musicians to bring forth the messages of these songs, including Malaysian pop sweetheart Yuna who touches hearts with her powerful emotive songs; the well-loved folk artist Art Fazil and indie musician Jon Chan who regularly move hearts with their honest songwriting; and the soulful and unassuming Ling Kai.

They are accompanied by special guests—award-winning American jazz singer Stacey Kent and saxophonist Jim Tomlinson, the inventive Bossarenova Trio, which includes the grand dame of bossa nova Paula Morelenbaum, and Spanish indie phenomenon Russian Red.

The concert features musical direction by respected producer and arranger Joshua Wan, who also forms the musical backbone of the evening with Noir, consisting of Melissa Tham (vocals, keyboards), Tony Makarome (bass) and Soh Wenming (drums), together with their friends Daniel Chai (guitar), Eugenia Yip (vocals) and Roxanne Abutin (vocals, guitar). Hosted by accomplished thespian Remesh Panicker, the concert will be scripted by filmmaker Lillian Wang.

An evening of passion and inspiration in a concert—no, an experience—you don’t want to miss as Mosaic Music Festival celebrates the universally desired value of peace.
