Michael Veerapen Quartet
January 18 & 19
When discussing Malaysian jazz, the name most people would associate with it would be pianist, Michael Veerapen. 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.
Even before graduating from the prestigious Berklee College of Music with Summa Cum Laude in 1982, he has made a name for himself as an upcoming pianist, having worked with some of the more popular bands who were at the forefront of the 70s era.
Michael has traveled around the world performing at jazz festivals, concerts and recently put together several 'duet' performances with his illustrious colleague, Jeremy Monteiro, with the aim of challenging himself in the more difficult and demanding styles of jazz performance and improvisation.
Over the years, he has performed with many notable musicians and singers and has earned himself the greatest respect from his colleagues, both at home and abroad, as is one of Malaysia's true musical treasures.
