Awesome time at Zandari Festa

We have been back in Singapore for almost 2 weeks and we are still having Seoul hangover. Yes, KBBQ anytime!

A huge thank you to Zandari Festa for the special Singapore and Korea Collab Stage. We were pleasantly surprised to see the Zandari banners on lamp posts all over Hongdae area with special mention of DanZZan stage performance. Appreciate all the kindness that has been extended to us.

The night before our Zandari performance, we had a hang out session in our Hongdae airbnb house. So glad that Campfire and Foundation Music dropped by. You have to check out SGCampfire music! It was a great time over Korean fried chicken and beer, and of course ended by making music together. So surreal to be doing this with a whole bunch of awesome Singaporeans in Seoul! Below is the video of the music jam live stream we had. Sweet memories!

Singapore Hangout Jam in Hongdae Seoul

HubbaBubbas, Jean Tan and BECKA were in Seoul for Zandari Festa. On 30 Oct, we decided to hang out in our airbnb house in Hongdae. So happy to have CampFire and Foundation Music joined us that night. It was a Singapore night in Hongdae! We had Korean fried chicken wings and beer before this and some great chats before settling some music. Loads of laughter. Great memories! :)SOOS OIO songwriters.sg OneClickWonders #danzzandate #hongdae #seoul #hangout #fun

The next day started early at Make Up For Ever Seoul at 8.30am because it was show day! Appreciate all four make up artistes taking time to make sure HubbaBubbas, Jean Tan and Becka look their best when they should be home helping their families prepare for Chuseok, an important Korea festival in their calendar.

This is the first time all three Singapore artistes played for a music festival in Korea. Not everything worked out the way we planned it to, but the artistes adjusted and rose up to the occasion. Love how all three artistes enjoyed themselves on stage and off stage. Seeing them shine on stage that Sunday afternoon at Zandari Festa is beyond words!

It has been slightly more than one year since we started putting this album and project together. There were moments when we wonder what will come out of this. Besides performing in Seoul at Zandari Festa, all three Singapore artistes have their albums/EPs launched in Korean music stores, a bonus beyond the track in DanZZan Date. For the Singaporeans to perform in Seoul makes a sweet end to the project. Although operationally this is the end, we choose to see this as a start. A start for many more things to come, in more ways than one. This is definitely not the end of the artistes' music journey, but a milestone. We hope the exposure through this project will launch them out to greater stages and reach. 

We must make mention of Leeway Music & Media, who went all the way to make this possible. Not an easy feat and you got the Singaporeans into Korea! 

Here's a short video summary of the DanZZan stage in Zandari Festa.

We are still editing the video footages from the artistes performances at Zandari. Will release them once they are ready. Follow us on our social media for updates. Below are a few shoots of the venue at Zandari Festa. For more photos, you can go to our Facebook Album.
