The kopitiam, or the coffeeshop, is a place where Singaporeans gather to have their meals, mingle, and create memories. Just like the variety of cuisines found in a kopitiam, Kopi Katz is made up of four very different musicians playing different ethnic instruments. Through casual banter and a little “music-drama”, their performance brings you your favourite Chinese New Year songs, popular Malay tunes and Indian folk tunes in a brand-new way!
