Since I’m feeling productive today, here’s a two-in-one update.
5th April 2012 was the funkadelic Dr. Rhythm live at Nerofico, Jalan Dungun!
Featuring some familiar faces like gregarious Gregory Ramanado…
…his brother, Herman Ramanado…
…and his brother from another mother Jared Cheow!
They were doing jazzier stuff with the keyboard and saxophone in tow.
Jamiroquai – Canned Heat and a jazzed-up Deep Purple – Black Night come to mind.
Of course, there was that one cover from the band which I know the Ramanados from – their hit single, Gypsy Girl.
Obligatory teeth inspection shot with Greg.
Fast-forward to the 16th of April 2012, for The Songwriters’ Showcase at The Bee, Publika! Here’s Jasemaine (on the right) emceeing with a girl whose name I did not catch.
I’m not sure if this was her band Astrawnomi or not.
Didn’t catch this guy’s name either. They were all speaking in Mandarin, mostly, which I cannot catch.
This was the first time I heard the epic Anna Chong.
Her band and her will draw you in with haunting layers of oriental worldly transcendent music.
