After a year of antagonising wait, the music event of the year is finally back. Mosaic Music Festival returns for the eighth time this March 9 to March 18, 2012 armed with a host of international, regional and local artistes whose music spans the gamut ranging from Latin jazz and Spanish flamenco to the avant-garde Finnish accordion and Japanese fusion.
The choices of artistes blend with the 10th anniversary of the Esplanade. While the birthday celebration is year-long, covering 17 arts festivals with the theme, “Celebrating Life — The Best Of The Human Spirit Through The Arts”, Mosaic runs for 10 days and will pay tribute to “peace”.
“Mosaic will celebrate Peace as we feature artists from around the world sharing their gifts with us as we revel in music’s ability to bridge the barriers of geography and language to bring people together. Music has the ability to generate a sense of release and relaxation and we hope the enjoyment of music will help to bring peace to one’s soul,” explains Clarence Yap, Assistant Director, Programming, The Esplanade Co. Ltd. in an interview with inSing.com.
Be sure to catch them live at the Mosaic Music Festival 2012.
