1.  Charlie Lim (Friday, Day 1)


A name some might not yet recognise – but the money is on this young man to be Asia’s next rising star. Already a seven-city tour veteran, and a iTunes Singapore chart-topper, the singer-songwriter-producer’s blend of indie R&B, acoustic, electo-pop and post-rock is going to leave his audience mesmerised.

2. Incognito (Saturday, Day 2)

Returning for a third SingJazz, the festival favourite is set to electrify the venue once again. The British acid jazz band has 16 albums to their name – “Don’t You Worry ’bout a Thing” ring a bell? –  and have taken stages from Sao Paolo to London to Tokyo.

Here’s an plug that counts – by Jeremy Monteiro himself: “I’m looking forward to catching Incognito and (Incognito’s) Bluey. He is such a gracious person and had travelled far within the UK to attend one of my gigs at Boughton Castle near Banbury.” Monteiro’s second recommendation for night two? Joss Stone.

3. Buena Vista Social Club (Day 3)


Leave it to the Cubans to refresh audiences worldwide with enigmatic tunes. Hailing from Havana, the Buena Vista Social Club is on its final tour, bringing an end to a 16-year era. Members present will: Omara Portuondo,  Guajiro Mirabal, Barbarito Torres, Jesus ‘Aguaje’ Ramos.

Says Michael Tay, Founder of the Foundation of Arts and Social Enterprise “Buena Vista Social Club is almost a god among the mortals of music! It’s their sunset tour and it’ll be against our Singapore skyline.”
