It was a lovely Saturday on Sentosa as friends and families descended on Palawan beach in the evening to enjoy the second annual Sentosa Ukulele Festival. Fine tunes were performed by some masters of the happy instrument such as Hawaiian and six-time Grammy award winner Daniel Ho, South Korean Sungha Jung, and local acts such as Char Siew Baos, Ukes Avenue, Carmine & Kelvin, Jukuleles, and fan-favourite Jack & Rai.
Drawing a crowd of about 4,000, some of the audience were spotted with their own ukuleles and strumming to familiar tunes, while others simply kicked back with food and drinks on the sandy shore as the sun set in the background.
“It’s my first time in Singapore and it’s been so great. The weather was perfect this evening and the crowd was so enthusiastic; it was just fantastic,” shared Daniel Ho.
