Serena plays percussion, with a flair for hand drums – the cajon, bongos, djembe, congas. Fueled by her passion, she infuses infectious rhythms with an eclectic assortment of music ranging from classical to modern: poprock, afro-cuban, fusion, electronic and dance music. Many performing opportunities have brought her overseas and she has shared stages with various local and international artistes including DJs KFC and Darren Emerson (UK); Tay Kexin, 53A, Tay Kewei, Jack and Rai, Somkiat (THA), Semiscon (TWN), and 3rd Line Butterfly (KOR).

She was in the ensemble representing Singapore for performances in Mexico City and Seoul during Youth Olympic Games 2010. In 2016, Serena played the year’s National Day theme song with 53A – Tomorrow’s Here Today, written by Don Richmond. Other performances include various “Esplanade Presents” series, WOMAD, the Disney musical The Lion King and several TV and radio appearances (LUSH 99.5 and 987FM). Her most memorable project till date would be City Buskers – a local TV show of 8 episodes filmed in 7 different cities in Asia, exploring each city’s busking and music scene.

Her newest foray sees her working with the talented Bryan Tay, breaking boundaries and going beyond what typical duos might entail. Their exciting new project can be found on Bryan and Serena.
