Yoohei Kawakami, the frontman of Japanese band Alexandros (previous named Champagne), once likened their music to a pizza in that it’s got a little bit of everything on it. While the band is grounded in alternative rock, you’ll hear everything from stripped down ambient songs to ones with a harder metal edge across their discography.
Singing in both Japanese and English, Alexandros have gained a massive fan base that spreads around the world. Experience J-Rock in its finest form from this quartet this month.

The vocally-gifted Lisang Pacidal Koyouan, a.k.a. A-Lin, is a regular in Malaysia and this July she’ll be returning to the Arena of Stars for a concert of best hits. As an aboriginal Taiwanese of Amis descent, she tries to incorporate musical elements from her tribal heritage into her work, with the aim of preserving and passing down that heritage.
Koyouan has mentioned in several interviews that she sings and listens to music to help her find freedom and peace, and that she hopes her own music has that same effect on others. Head up to Genting to see (and hear!) how it does.
