Paul Ponnudorai, One Man & One Guitar!

Despite his growing popularity throughout the world, Paul Ponnudorai remains humble to his cause, to play music and to make music worth listening to. I’ve known Paul for 4 years now and he has been more than wonderful though our friendship was only bonded through other friendships. Paul is married to his number 1 fan in this world Anne Rodrigues (Anne if u r reading this, i hope i spelled ur name correctly). Although there is much for me to share with you guys about this great musician that i highly look up to, i’ll leave the talking to Time Magazine. Yes you read it right, TIME magazine. I’m quite disapointed that the article branded him as Singapore’s Undiscovered Talent though, as Paul is and always will be truly Malaysian. It’s just sad that playing music in Malaysia does not take you places. =)

Here are the links to where you can READ MORE ABOUT PAUL PONNUDORAI

Paul on TIME Magazine (in partnership with CNN)

Paul on New Straits Time Malaysia

Harry’s Pub in Singapore (Where he currents play his music weekly)

Paul Featured on The Star on Paul’s performance in the 2007 Penang Jazz Festival

Paul’s Debut album Right on Time was produced by Enrico Crivellaro with Ethnobeat. For those who cant tell from listening, Paul recorded the CD in 1 take & on 1 day without any programs. It is purely the man and his guitar. However, Paul did some dubbing in Henry Koh’s Lullaby. =)

Here’s a glimpse of what Paul is capable of

And here’s one where Paul jams withJeremy Monteiro and the Tuck & Patti duo during a Christmas Concert held in the Esplanade Singapore.
