17 Jul 2024, Wed, 7.15pm & 8.15pm


(Intermission: None)

Esplanade Concourse


Join Recorda WE for the debut of an unprecedented trio featuring Andreaz Rozario on piano, Umar Zakaria on bass, and Matthew Tan on soprano recorder (German). They perform a mix of standards from a variety of eras and originals, utilising a poly-intonation tuning system. They will also try to be very serious musicians. 


Recorda WE is founded on a blossoming friendship, the mutual appreciation for living lightly, the satiation of curiosity and erudition, and the shared love for all music including, but not restricted to, the tradition of black American music/jazz. 


No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
