We've also created a blogsite especially for KL Sing Song 2006. Check it out!


In the meantime, you can catch us (and a whole load of other musicians)
at Fete de La Musique at Alliance Francaise, 15 Jalan Gurney on 17 June. There are four performance spaces altogether, with acts playing various genres of music. The main draw is La Casa, the French band that's flown in especially for the fest. But we heard rumours that Ning Baizura's going to make an appearance. Maybe she'll sing a few Piaf numbers, eh? Full list of performers and performance times *soon* to be found at

If you don't care for "foreign music" and *really really* wanna catch Troubaganger acts, we'll be happening at the Indoor Stage from 1pm to 3pm, and then again at the same place from 9pm to 11pm.

Notice: An early version of the flyer for the event has us mistakenly billed as "TROUBAGANDERS" - we have since berated the organisers about this but it's too late to make changes to the flyers. Are we people or are we geese? We'll be making sarky comments about this during our performances no doubt. So watch out for some xenophobic mudslinging at dim-witted frogs... LOL... no lah... we're polite people, you know!

Some Troubaganger acts set to make an appearance (God willing!) at the "Fate Deee Lala Muzische" are: Jerome Kugan, Tan Sei Hon, Azmyl Yunor, SuperBar, Malokai Gruv, Zach Tay, Plush Velvet, Broken Scar, Dalin & Edy, Nick Razman, Hanafi, Imam, The Wans, and Go (featuring Jaz, Zalila and Jerral) plus more...


18 June, if you really really enjoyed our outing at the French picnic, we'll be having our monthly Troubadours/Open Doors at KLPAC featuring The Sofa Sessions, Wei Jun and Silent Scenery. Plus we'll be screening the documentary of KL Sing Song 2005 that Kino-i did for us. Come lah!
