KLPac & Inner Voices: LET'S GO MAMAK! (1-3 Aug)

I got it from my Mamak!

What traditionally started out as a simple road side stall has evolved into an important Malaysian social institution! Mamak stalls are a true multi-racial melting pot, a place where everybody meets for a snack or a drink with friends, business clients, breakfast or just watching football at night!


aims to serve you up a slice of that Malaysiana through music!
A showcase of original compositions and arrangements by Ken Hor - performed by an eclectic group of local musicians such as New-York based saxophonist Julian Chan and violinist Fung Chern Hwei, BOH Cameronian recipient Prakash Kandasamy on tabla, Jimmy Ch'ng from Hands Percussion Team, sought-after jazz pianist Tay Cher Siang, the renown percussionist Kamrulbahri Hussin, and many many more!

1 - 3 August @ 8.30pm
Pentas 2, KLPac
(Click here for location map & public transport options)
RM30 / RM20 (students, sr. citizens & the disabled)

Featuring thirteen of the finest and most culturally diverse musical talents from Malaysia, expect an evening of truly Malaysian music!

Gig update: Alexis Bistro - 18 and 19 July

Hey everyone,

My sincerest apologies for not publicizing our gig at Bangkok Jazz recently, I've been swamped with work since I got back from New York... and yes, I'm back from New York for the summer holidays.

We did a kick-butt gig at Bangkok Jazz two weekends ago. Daniel Foong replaced Vincent for one set on Friday night, and kicked butt as well, he held his own real good. The second night was also a killer night, with Lewis Pragasam sitting in on one tune on the second set, as we did a Kenny Barron tune called Voyage. We did a couple of new tunes in addition to our existing hardbop repertoire, and we had a ball doing it too.

Anyway, here's a plug for our upcoming show:

BOPLICITY Live! @ Alexis Bistro and Wine Bar
Date: 18 and 19 July 2008 (Fri and Sat)
Time: 10.30pm onwards
Admission: Free (but call to reserve seats so you don't have to stand!)
Venue: Alexis Bistro and Wine Bar, Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang KL

Hope to see you there!
