The Comeback Artist

Taken during a rehearsal for his upcoming special showcase on 18 January
The musicians involved in the recording and the special showcase on 18 January
I was invited to session for Maman's latest solo album, entitled 'Taqwa', which is due to be released in March this year.

I played the acoustic guitar, bass & oud on some songs in this album.

Besides that, I also did a photoshoot for him, photos of which are to be used for the album sleeve & inlay designs.

Quick reference: Maman was the singer for a now-defunct band called 'Teacher's Pet', which consisted some of Singapore's best musicians at that time (i.e. early 90s). In my opinion, they were a musicians' band, equivalent to the American band 'Mr. Big'.
They had a song called 'Warisan Wanita Terakhir' which is still requested on some radio stations.
Please do click here for more information about the man himself.

There will be a special showcase by him, backed by an all-acoustic band ('yours truly' included), tomorrow at the Singapore Expo Hall 6. He is scheduled to perform around 5pm.

Do come down if you can & give your support!

worldthrumylens great set! love 2,9 and 10.

shiqin I was going thru the picture thinking this oughta be in one of the album sleeves that you get to work on, and boy was I right! They're perfect and you did a great job Azrin. I have to say that by looking at this it reflects greatly of you as a musician/designer/photographer... I really like this set a lot.
