hamster and the guppies - sg arts fest special!



I had so much fun playing my 60s music playlist at Singapore Arts Fest' Festival Village yesterday! It was the first time ever I had people dancing to the music. I really am grateful to the Arts Fest organisers for inviting me to play. Here is a podcast of the songs I played last night. So perhaps you can dance around in your room too. (I hope you do!) It's almost 2 hours long!

Festival Village is at Esplanade Park. And that's really close to where the photo above was taken, in the 1960s!

Whoa - that does sound like fun! And I can definitely dance around to Rita Choa's "Shake Shake Shake" :D To be honest, I don't understand the language, but the rhythm is great!!

I'm trying to get my blog off the ground and was wondering if you might come check it out (and maybe consider following?).

Hope you have an *amazing* day! :)
