Musicians to look out for at Culture Cartel
Local musicians Amanda Keisha Ang and Daphne Khoo are among the highlights of Culture Cartel 2020.
Culture Cartel, an event highlighting street culture across Singapore and the South-East Asia region, is going digital this year.
Happening on Dec 5 from 1pm to 12am, the event brings a host of masterclasses, brands, and performers from around the world.
Here are some musicians you can look forward to seeing at Culture Cartel 2020:
1. Yuka Mizuhara
Yuka Mizuhara is a DJ known for her preference to combine sounds made by analogue with the latest technology. She also enjoys designing cassette tape covers because she sees old records and cassettes as treasures.
Apart from that, she is a fashion model and has almost 379,000 followers on Instagram.
Among the panellist at this year’s event is Daphne Khoo, who many remember for her fourth place finish in the first season of Singapore Idol. She reinvented herself in 2017 as Haneri as she wanted to be “more honest with [her] music”.
Haneri was one of the winners of the Young Songwriter of the Year at the Composers and Authors Society of Singapore Awards 2017. The award is only given to songwriters below 35 years old with the highest royalty earnings in that age group.
3. Amanda Keisha Ang
Amanda Keisha Ang’s music journey started when her father bought her a guitar when she was young. Amanda started an all-female DJ collective in 2014 and has performed in cities around the world.
4. Jon Chua JX
Lead guitarist and vocalist of The Sam Willows, Jon Chua started Zendyll Records in 2018.
Jon’s role model is American singer Pharrell Williams because he sees Pharrell as helping to “establish new artists and [fostering] a culture of collaboration” in the music industry.
