TEDxKL

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Our event is called TEDxKL, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxKL event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized

Chery Tan & Az Samad

Cheryl Tan – A Jazz Vocalist & Az Samad – A Guitarist-Composer

When vocalist Cheryl Tan and fingerstyle guitarist Az Samad decided to collaborate, they wanted to showcase music that was exclusively buatan Malaysia. Their repertoire spans from vintage pop to recent hits, from P. Ramlee classics to musical theatre and even art music.

With a love for the eclectic and the influences they absorbed while living in America, they combine their creative energies to make sincere music. Looking from the inside, then as Malaysians abroad and now as returning artists, they seek to explore Malaysian art and culture through their music.

Join us as we celebrate music that is our own, reimagined in this intimate setting of guitar and voice.
