Singapore's Latin Duo: Ally And Bobo At The Expo

Well here they are ladies and gentlemen, two of the best Singapore strollers I have seen since my days in Paris, France. Elder brother Ally (right image) and Bobo (who plays lead and rhythm with The Silver Strings) are seen here at the Singapore Exposition hallways performing Latin hits from the 60s with only an acoustic guitar each. They were performing, Fly Me To The Moon and Quizas, Quizas, Quizas.
The amateur recordings on 1st May 2011 were done impromptu and under extraordinary circumstances. But the music and vocals are excellent, definitely professional. Los Bobos, as they are called, played for two hours each day during lunch. Pity you missed them because they are a fantastic duo, playing a great number of current music too. The Los Bobos are not buskers but stroll at nightspots around Singapore entertaining moonlight revellers.

(Bobo passed away on 3rd January, 2015.  For a number of concerts he had accompanied me on stage when I sang, Mean Woman Blues, Red River Rock and Diana. God bless you Bobo. You are a good, sincere and generous person.  May you rest in peace.)
