The Gloomy Island Blues Festival at MOM Livehouse
Why We Recommend it
Bands from Taiwan, The Philippines and Hong Kong will share the stage at indie concert venue MOM Livehouse, performing various genres of blues, jazz and folk music.
This is a special concert organised as a part of The Gloomy Island Blues Festival, the first festival of this kind in Hong Kong, that brings an exciting line-up of both local and international talent to MOM Livehouse.
The Muddy Basin Ramblers are a seven-strong Taiwanese band with a penchant for performing with lesser-known instruments from the dawn of the 20th century, such as the washboard, tub bass, and resonator. The septet will play a mix of American jazz, blues, swing and jug band culture.
Hailing from the Philippines, touring harmonica player Ian Lofamia and his band touch down in Hong Kong to bring their unique city blues to the stage.
Blending blues, folk and country music, local singer-songwriter Tomii Chan is a jack-of-all-trades known for his sincere and simple songs, which he composes, records, produces and publishes himself.
An other local act Sextet Shake That Thing play their energetic and electrifying urban blues with a rich instrumental arrangement with horns.
