TGIF!: Your weekend guide (15-17 Nov)

It’s an all-music weekend in Singapore, with everything from a festival showcasing pop and rock from Asia, to dance parties and classical Indian folk tunes and melodies.

The Sundown Festival returns, turning Marina Promenade into Asian music central for eight hours on Saturday. From Hong Kong superstar Bosco Wong, to Indonesian rockers Nidji, here’s a preview of what’s to come. We also caught up with one of the artists, Taiwanese singer Yoga Lin, and found out his favourite yoga pose.

Nidji (Indonesia), Bosco Wong (Hong Kong) and Yoga Lin (Taiwan) are among the line up of 10 artists playing at Sundown Festival 2013. 

Keeping in the party vein, Italian DJ, Benny Benassi returns to Singapore for one night at Zouk, supported by Hong.

It’s the second weekend of Super 0 Season. This Saturday, Singapore DJ Zig Zach hits the decks. If you’re up for some deep house and nu-disco with a dash of techno, you’ve come to the right place.

Representing again for the local contingent, are the smooth stylings of funk group The Good Life Project and Tim De Cotta at Blu Jaz Café: Warrior’s Hall. These up and comers have a musical sensibility far beyond their years.

As always, there’s a dash of culture via the two week-long Indian arts festival Kalaa Utsavam 2013 at the Esplanade. Tonight, popular author Chetan Bhagat is in town for a talk about how he went from banker to ‘The Paperback King’.

Also in the Kalaa Utsavam programme lineup is Taal Express by Temple of Fine Arts, where classical Indian musicians will take you on a journey of the music from Tamilnadu to Punjab.
