Alfred Ho goes Guerilla to survive…

Sunday was quite a saddening day.. Went over to Amcorp Mall to do reccee of the place for work. While walking, i stumbled upon a familiar voice. It was music i have heard before. Music my mum use to play on our Hi-Fi. Quickly i just moved closer to the watching crowd and i squeezed myself in. I saw Alfred Ho, Malaysia’s most prominent BLIND GUITARIST cum VOCALIST and he was sitting down playing to a 10 person crowd which was dancing and singing along to his music. 


FOr those who has not heard of Alfred, he’s a Malaysian Blind Folkish Acoustic Musician. He plays and sings and has to date recorded probably 4 albums. He does covers of English & Hokkien songs. Anyway, use to love his guitaring as he reminds me of Jose Feliciano. Nice voice, not bad licks and a very good heart. Unfortunately for Alfred, there is not much of a following for him in Malaysia and the industry for English Music is not that much of a shout out. I would have supported Alfred by buying an album if i did not already have 2 of his albums. So for those of you who supports the Malaysian English Music Industry, start by buying their ORIGINAL CD’s. Next time you spot this guy anywhere, he’s a recording artist. His name is ALFRED HO! Please buy his CD. =) Alfred, if anyone spots this and tells you what i have written, i can only wish you for the better. I support you… & i do love your version of Suku Suku!
