UNLEASHING YOUR GENIUS (MUSIC & ARTS) - 8:30pm
Featuring: Kim Sng (beatboxing) / Tilla (singer/guitarist) / Aiman (singer)

‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’

We all have genius within us. Yet knowing you have a genius within doesn't make picking up a guitar or a paintbrush any easier. On the contrary, if we believe that "art" is for "artists" only, we live only as an observer and dreamer.

On Wednesday night, you'll hear how these artists found their way to let art into their lives. Unique stories of self-expression, we promise you’ll leave inspired to unleash your own genius!

OPEN MIC - Join us to share your genius with a warm and supportive crowd! A poem, a song, a cover of your favorite tune…we want to hear it! Just book your open mic spot here and Cynthia will reach out to you: http://goo.gl/forms/28h9fQk3OzfBTteZ2

Join us for a shot of creative inspiration, for soulful conversations with old and new friends over coffee/drinks, and for a night that’ll inspire you to unleash your own genius. Come alone, or bring friends. Either way, you’ll meet a new crowd to mingle with!

And as always, feel free to join the artists afterwards to freestyle and create fun music on the fly!
Modern life is rubbish. Modern life is confusing. Modern life is terrifying. Ian Tai sings songs about modern life, waxing lyrical over a trail of musical destruction stemming from his own life experiences and observations. No stone is left unturned as hipsters, zealots, ex-girlfriends and even the unsuspecting middle class populace are given a spotlight.

Featured Acts:

Kim Sng - Beatboxing

Born and bred in Subang Jaya, Kim is an accountant by day, and probably not your typical Cina Amoi.

Her genius? Beatboxing. Entering the scene in 200, Kim breaks the stereotyped belief that beatboxing is an exclusive all-boys game only. She was a nominee as the opening act for MTV World Stage 2015, first runner up in Malaysia’s Next Female Stand Up Comic 2015, featured on Asia Pop 40 across Singapore, Thailand, and Indonsia radios in 2014, nominee for Best Beatboxer in MY Hip Hop Awards 2013, and represented Malaysia in the World Beatbox Championships 2012 in Berlin, Germany.

Fun testimonial: “Kim beatboxes like a BOSS! I was like damn, that lady has got 3 mouths, there is no way all that sound is coming from one mouth.” ~ Kafayat Quadri (singer/songwriter)

Tilla - singer/guitarist

Tilla started music when she was 9, but only started performing in public not too long ago at age 16. She calls music her happy place, and can’t go wrong when she makes music. The most rewarding thing about performing for her? “I get to make people feel happy, and hope to spread love through my music.”

Recommended by Kim as one of the best raw talents she’s seen, Tilla is a gem and amazing young talent we’ll all be blown away by. To get a taste of what to expect, check her out at:

Aiman Ahmad - singer

Aiman has captured audiences as opening acts and hopped on with featured acts at Gaslight and beyond. Excited to have him return as our third featured performance for April’s Unleashing Your Genius!

“Music has always been a big part of my life. Whether I'm happy, sad or angry, i always try and find a song to amplify those emotions because i feel that it makes me truly alive.

i never knew i could sing until 3 years ago. Reason being that a lot of people closest to me either disapproved or told me that I'm not good enough. But i started anyways because I love music.

I love how it helps people go through their troubled times, as well as the happiness it brings. That’s why the most rewarding feeling i get out of performing is just the simple fact that my singing helped them with any emotional distraught or fill them with joy on a stressful day.”
