TONY & THE POLAR BEAR FIVE

I'm definitely on a Singapore 60's trip at the moment, they really created a very own "Singapore Sound" back then, very distinctive and it's all a beautiful mix of rock n roll, psych, Chinese traditional music and the style became also very popular in Hong Kong and Malaysia where lots of band started playing that style, Off-Beat Cha Cha, A Go Go and Hula....

Here's another band from there that was active during the Off Beat Cha Cha, Hula craze in those days, Tony & The Polar Bear Five, and I can't find much info about them, they're always mentioned when you read about The Stylers, The Melodians etc.....

Check out the first song on this one, with singer Yuli...T hese guys were pretty amazing....
