Teresa Carpio 'Live' in Singapore (...
Fresh from her new-found fame on the latest 2017 edition of “I’m a Singer” (我是歌手), Powerhouse Diva Teresa Carpio (杜麗莎) makes her first rare Singapore Concert appearance at MES Theatre at Mediacorp on 20 January 2018, 8PM.Teresa Carpio stunned audiences on “I’m A Singer” with her impeccable tour de force ‘live’ performances of classics such as “Imagine”, “Carmen”, “Someone Like You”, “Vincent”, “I Really Love You” (真的愛你) and “If” (假如). Her vocal prowess is also showcased on Jiangsu TV’s 2017 Golden Melody Mandarin duets with superstars Andy Hui (我還能愛誰) , Alan Tam (愛與痛的邊緣) and Terry Lin (拆穿).Known for her powerful voice and electrifying stage performances, Teresa Carpio has sung all over the world and released 23 albums. She also has the golden reputation as “Vocal Coach to the Stars”, boastings students such as superstars Sandy Lam, Sammi Cheng, Gigi Leung and Joey Yung.Attending a performance by Teresa Carpio is like watching a living review of musical history – past, present and future. She will dip into the past to sing songs from our own youth, or from a time when our parents were young – songs of another age and time. Then she will soar into the music of the Eighties and Nineties, performing soulful Cantonese melodies or wrenching ballads in a voice that is always powerful yet never over-powering. Today's music gets a similar treatment, where she takes songs and makes them her own.Equally powerful in Cantopop – Teresa released a series of Cantonese-language albums, each of which contained songs that are now considered among the classics of the genre: 假如 (If), an aching ballad to lost love; the late night anthem for the broken-hearted 真愛 (True Love); the Cantonese cover of Kyu Sakamoto’s Sukiyaki, 眉頭不再猛皺; the hit song penned by popular singing partner George Lam Chi Cheung 仍然記得嗰一次 (I Still Remember The Time); and the uplifting 何必放棄 (Why Give Up), among many, many others.In addition, Teresa hosted her own musical variety show for three years on HKTVB; starred in the award-winning original musical City Of Broken Promises in San Jose, California and kicked off the trend to mega-concerts at the 12,000-seat Hong Kong Coliseum.She took time to raise a family, still keeping herself in the public eye with the occasional performance and movie role, until featuring in Clifton Ko Chi Sum’s 67-night local hit musical I Have A Date With Spring. Her role as the brash nightclub singer stole the show, in particular her rendition of Carmen which brought the house down night after night.Teresa made a huge impact in Hong Kong again when she held a triumphant series of six concerts with the Hong Kong Philharmonic in Christmas 2002. Entitled simply DIVA, the performances brought the classical and pop worlds together in a way no one else could have done – the DVD release outsold almost everything that year.In 2004 and 2012, Teresa teamed up with superstar veterans George Lam and Alan Tam respectively, performing to sold-out crowds at the 12,000-seat Hong Kong Coliseum. She deservedly won the 2007 Best Collaboration with Vocals at the 30th CASH Golden Sail Music Awards, and the Golden Needle Award at the RTHK 30th Top Ten Chinese Music Awards - an honour that is only given to those artists who have made an exceptional contribution to the Hong Kong music industry.In 2017, Teresa is back, stronger than ever, with exciting new performances for her growing audiences worl

Figure8 Agency, in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, is thrilled to present the Tuareg Grammy-winning sensation Tinariwen in Singapore! Tinariwen is an iconic desert blues band originally from northern Mali, a country which has given the world Toumani Diabaté and the great Ali Farka Touré, among others. Rooted in traditional Tuareg music but influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, their music addresses political awakening, problems of exile, repression, and sovereignty. The band has become a rallying point for the disenfranchised nation, while helping to garner global interest in desert blues, a hypnotic and danceable combination of blues, Tuareg folk, rock and more. Outlawed in Algeria and Mali, their first two albums found an international audience, and paved the way for a wave of Tuareg desert blues artists such as Bombino and Tamikrest. Their praises have been sung by some of the planet’s most influential musicians—Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, Robert Plant and Chris Martin, to name just a few.Elwan was recorded between Morocco and Joshua Tree, California, with special guests Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age), Kurt Vile and Matt Sweeney (Johnny Cash, Bonnie Prince Billy and Cat Power).
