Sandee Chan

Arguably Taiwan’s most talented female indie singer-songwriter, Sandee Chan, also affectionately known to her fans as “Princess”, has also written  hundreds of hits and produced albums for pop artists such as Sammi Cheng, Nicholas Tse, Valen Hsu and Jolin Tsai, on top of writing songs for films such as In the Mood for Love directed by Wong Kar-Wai, and creating 11 solo albums.

Saturday only, at the Esplanade. Tickets from $45 to $85.

 

Sunday, 21 February

 

Cosmos People

Touring on the back of its successful self-titled debut album, the firmly tongue-in-cheek Mandopop dress-up four-piece performs its decidedly oddball, Jamiroquai-inspired galactic disco-funk and groovy, bass-driven pop at this Sunday afternoon gig.

Sunday only, at the Esplanade Recital Studio. Tickets at $25.

 

An Evening of Poetry and Music

This annual event marks the end of the NUS Creative Writing competition, and celebrates the works of established artistes such as Ng Yi Sheng and Chris Mooney Singh as well as other budding student writers.

Sunday only, at the Arts House. Free.

 

13band

Bursting onto the scene in 2000, Taipei’s slick Brit-rocking quartet has released four studio albums as well as 2006’s Silver Sun, an obscure, guitar-driven concept EP about Vincent van Gogh. Tonight the Beatles-loving crew continues the Huayi – Chinese Festival of Arts 2010.

Sunday only, at the Esplanade Recital Studio. Tickets at $25.
