Nepalese Band

A new insertion to the Migrant Voices family! We are greatful to our dear Nepalese friend Wali Lama who have hooked us up with a young group of Nepalese migrants. Made of students and one construction worker all below 30 years old, the group have practiced together and are serious about a musical career! They performed for us and we were instantly won over by their songs sung in Nepalese comprising of traditional folk tunes and modern pop rock.

Pardon the poor quality!

HOME Talentime

We started the HOME Talentime two months ago and since then have wrapped up the first rounds. The Talentime was held at 2 shelters - Serangoon Gardens and Siglap. There are 2 categories - Group and Individual.
The women started off the Talentime slowly and gained momentum each week as they anticipate our presence. Shaun Teo and Ruby Cana gave tips on voice projection and stage presence. Using these knowledge, the women sang songs in their native languages and some English ones too. We saw their energy heightened and the ladies began experimenting with different styles.
Each week, we rotated between the Group and Individual category picking winners each week with guest judges like HOME founder Bridget Liew and Migrant Voices Members, Susy Bungsu and Ruby Pan.
With the first rounds over, we've taken a month break. This time, the women are gearing up for the 2nd rounds which will then lead to the finals. We're very near to crowning our HOME Talentime Group and Individual winners!
