Singapore Cowboy

Music is a beautiful bridge that connects different peoples and different cultures.  In today’s Straits Times, the Singapore newspaper, there is an article about the Singapore Cowboy. He does not look like a cowboy from Tennessee but he sure made good country music to entertain us, Singaporeans.

At the time when I used to head to the lounge-bar of the Shangri-la Hotel where Matthew & The Mandarins used to play their country music, never did I even imagine the likelihood of me living in the US, where this kind of music originated.

Listen to Matthew & The Mandarins, the music beat is country but the lyrics… very Singaporean.
