In the week leading in to the A Tapestry of Sacred Music festival, the musical riches of the world come to waterfront as we present a spectrum of sounds from various countries and continents. Featured artists include Flame of the Forest, Project W, Marisma Flamenco and NUS Singa Nglaras Gamelan Ensemble.

17 Apr, Thu

NUS Singa Nglaras Gamelan Ensemble
7.30 – 8.15pm
8.45 – 9.30pm
10 – 10.45pm

The Ensemble’s primary motivation is the relaxed enjoyment and appreciation of gamelan music, so that they can penetrate into more advanced aspects of the music and play more complex musical compositions. Members of the ensemble include National University of Singapore students, alumni, faculty members and members of the public.

The Ensemble has an annual evening of Southeast Asian Music at the university that includes traditional dance, wayang kulit (shadow puppet theatre) and collaborations with many Indonesian artists.

18 Apr, Fri

Flame of the Forest
7.30 – 8.15pm
8.45 – 9.30pm
10 – 10.45pm

Be spellbound by the music of brothers Krsna Tan (Sitar), Govin Tan (Tabla/Percussion) and Dexter Tan (Violin). Krsna and Govin’s father was one-third of the first generation of Flame of the Forest, a Singapore band that played fusion music back in the 1980s.
The trio is a true example of a multicultural act, blending the harmony of both Indian and Western classical instruments.

19 Apr, Sat


Project W
7.30 – 8.15pm
8.45 – 9.30pm
10 – 10.45pm

A passionate group of musicians decided to form Project W after working in a series of outreach performances, with hopes of including more musicians from the community to perform wind band pieces as well as ensemble music. Project W aims to support Singapore musicians and music as well as make music and the arts more accessible for everyone.
The group is led by Singapore flute player, Sin Jin How, who is also the conductor for this evening’s performance.

20 Apr, Sun


Marisma Flamenco


7.30 – 8.15pm
8.45 – 9.30pm


Marisma Flamenco came together in 2010 after countless performances in Singapore, specialising in sevillanas, rumbas and tangos flamencos, as well as fandangos de Huelva – genres which are cheerful, infectious with an uplifting blend of rhythm and dance.
The group comprises two core members, Sonia Castro and Paloma Navarro, and players skilled in violin, cello, piano, cajon and other percussion instruments such as castanets, and not forgetting the all-important use of synchronised clapping (palmas).

Paloma Navarro
Singer and guitarist Paloma Navarro was born in Southern Spain. She started to sing and play the guitar at the age of five and has continued to promote Spanish culture even though she left Spain 25 years ago.


Sonia Castro
Sonia Castro is the winner of several choreography prizes in Spain. She was born in Barcelona and dedicated her life to sport, fitness and dance in various forms, and is now an outstanding Flamenco dancer. Sonia trained in Madrid and Singapore, and has always strived to follow in the footsteps of her teachers and other great flamenco dancers.
