An all male group called 'Fabulous Orchids' and a Ms Singapore runner-up who became a singer. When Dr. Steven Farram wrote in and provided the list below, I realised many readers are not familiar with some of these local and Asian 60's artistes, so I have provided some vinyl-cover and magazine illustrations to enhance Steve's information. And it's all because of Ms Yen Chow's flower power in the art class.
I am just wondering now how many of these flowers are still singing. Anyone?
What artists whose names are flowers? All the ones in the list below are 1960's Singapore-Malaysia recording artists except as indicated.
Dara Puspita (flower girls - Indonesia - 2015 RS magazine cover)
Doea Melati (two jasmines – Indonesia-Netherlands)
Fabulous Orchids (from Pontian)
Lily Sjarif (Indonesia)
Madam Rose (HK)
Rima Melati (jasmine - Indonesia)
Rose (she had at least three EPS in mid-1960s Singapore/Malaysia)
Sakura Teng (cherry blossom)
Titiek Puspa (flower - Indonesia)
