Dick Lee on what is the Singapore sound

Joanna Dong interview: she shares on her relationship with jazz and languages
The Sing! China finalist made waves recently for her stunning versatility, whether if it was improvising a trumpet solo or a full-on display of vocal skills, and her place in the finals was well-deserved, performing alongside her show mentor Jay Chou.
The experience was certainly a career affirmation of sorts for the singer, who's been performing in the Singaporean jazz scene for more than a decade, and it was, as she tells us, almost overwhelming too.

Akeem Jahat on Singapore music, his inspirations, his artistic philosophy and more
"When someone tells me, 'Akeem, it's not possible.' You sure it's not possible? Is it hard or not possible? If it's hard, I'll do it. If it's not possible, then let's go and change that answer."
Akeem Jahat has been putting Singapore – and his beloved neighbourhood, Woodlands – on the hip-hop map since 2006. For this special edition of "A Conversation With", Bandwagon sat down with Akeem in the studio for a multi-chapter interview, from his love of the Notorious B.I.G. to his family and his new album, which will be out sometime this year.
