A Mini-Directory of Buskers
On the buskers we met- last we knew where they were.
Senior citizen dance king Roland performs with great vitality outside Tampines MRT, at Ang Mo Kio central and occasionally at Clarke Quay.
Like Roy and others, Castello started busking at the Lido underpass in the early 90s. He is not busking at the moment.
Uncle Mas, a local busking pioneer, plays the saxophone, keyboard and sings. He performs outside Tampines MRT, occasionally with his son and daughter.
Robert busks outside Tampines MRT with his deep, enchanting baritone voice.
Mr Ow, who used to be a rag-and-bone man, performs his age-defying bead act outside Ngee Ann City along Orchard Road.
Tony, an accomplished musician, dances with his erhu at Ang Mo Kio Central and at the Lucky Plaza underpass.
Godfrey, a once familiar face of the Wheelock and Lido underpasses from way back when, now busks at Clarke Quay.
Buskers from Japan ply their trade with a contact juggling and movement act at Orchard Road and Ang Mo Kio central come the festive season.
