SHIOK! This is Singlish (Singapore English) for "perceiving strong physical and/or emotional excitement", and that's exactly how the audience felt by the end of the very first Canadian Blast in Merlion City. For over three hours audience in The Forbidden City basked in the powerful sonic waves of our superb artists and couldn't help but get jiggy with it. Being very polished performers, Masia One, Saidah Baba Talibah and These Kids Wear Crown killed it with absolute ease (again) this evening.
Canadian Blast is guitar maestro Pavlo's first time performing in Singapore. He and his musicians pulled out all stops to wow and their efforts were not lost in the crowd.
The event wrapped up past midnight and folks were seen leaving with smiles on their faces :)
More good vibes tomorrow. These Kids Wear Crowns at Se7en 1nch, Pavlo at Yello Jello, Masia and Saidah Baba Talibah at the Main Stage.
