Update 1: Margaret's recordings are now available at Earshot, the bookstore at The Arts House in Old Parliament Lane!
This is the lovely Margaret Leng Tan performing on her toy piano and her collection of unusual instruments at the premiere of Singapore GaGa, the documentary by Tan Pin Pin.
After watching it with Miyagi at the Press Preview screening last week, I knew I had the take the wife to see it too.
Watching Margaret perform at the premiere tonight was an added bonus. Groupie that I am, I bought two of her CDs (Litania and The Art of the Toy Piano) and she autographed them.
In the audience tonight were two other members of the cast, Auntie Joyce (Margaret's mother) and one member of the "Latin Boy Band".
Do yourself a favour and catch Singapore GaGa too. It's a documentary made with a lot of heart.
Singapore GaGa opens at the Arts House on March 11 to 16 April (Except 1 April), 7.30pm on Wednesdays and 4.30pm on weekends. Tickets are at $6 and $8, Ticket hotline: 6332 6919. More info here.
