Returning to the Alexis stage for one night only on Christmas Eve (Tuesday 24 December) is none other than Dasha Logan, daughter to the late Alleycats’ vocalist Loganathan Arumugam with The Michael Veerapen Trio feat. Julian Chan. Dasha is no stranger to the KL music scene. Having been exposed to the music industry from a very young age, she has been passionate about music and performing ever since. Amongst many achievements, her single Cleverly reached the top spot on the UK Soul Chart in 2014.
When discussing Malaysian jazz, Michael Veerapen’s name is synonymous with Malaysian music, particularly in the field of Jazz where he is widely acknowledged to be the driving force behind the jazz scene in Malaysia. Together with drummer Lewis Pragasam, they organized Malaysia’s first Jazz Rock concert in 1978, which brought about a tremendous interest in jazz especially amongst younger audiences and thereby planting the seeds for the way jazz is loved in this country. His jazz club “All That Jazz” was an institution in and of itself, earning an international reputation for being one of the best and most significant Jazz Clubs in the Asia region.
Born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Julian has been an active performer in the Malaysian and regional music scene since 2001. Julian has performed with both local and international artistes (both jazz and of other styles) and also has established himself as a prominently versatile saxophonist in the region. As part WVC – Malaysian Jazz Ensemble, he has recorded several instrumental and vocal albums. Julian is also an active educator, being an adjunct lecturer at the Institute of Music, UCSI University, as well as his own private saxophone studio.
