Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. This local rapper and hip hop artist has made a name for himself with his very localized style. His ability to tell stories that the local population can immediately relate to, by focusing on his identity, has allowed him to carve out a niche for himself in the music industry. Another hip hop and rap artist that is immediately identifiable in the local scene is Shigga Shay. His use of Singlish and other common languages in his songs is a testament to that, and he is typically adored by young people. She has since released her first debut EP. Her electronic imbued music strikes a chord with the local population, who is eager for something innovative. Her melodious and fluid vocals have been helping her gain international traction.
A patriotic song is one which inspires feelings of pride in one's country. The list has both traditional folk songs that have special meaning to Singaporeans , as well as modern songs composed specifically for national celebrations, particularly the National Day Parade held on 9 August each year, Singapore's National Day. Generally speaking, there may be said to be two types of Singaporean patriotic songs. The first type are traditional folk songs that have, over time, come to have special meaning to Singaporeans. Many of these are in vernacular languages — Malay , Mandarin and Tamil , for instance. The second type are the comparatively modern songs, mostly in English , that were composed specifically for national events — particularly the National Day Parade held annually on 9 August — and for use in schools. The song is usually broadcast on radio and television starting from a month before National Day, and is given prominence during the Parade itself. In , the National Arts Council inaugurated the Sing Singapore Festival, the aim of which was to discover and promote home-grown music and artistes. According to the Council, it also hoped to nurture a love for music and singing and cultivate a greater sense of togetherness amongst Singaporeans. The programme led to the creation of a number of new songs by Singaporean composers, some of which were selected for National Day celebrations.
