The past week has seen plenty of heartwarming moments during Coldplay’s pit stop in Singapore for the band’s six-day Music Of The Spheres tour, which began on Jan 23 and will wrap on Jan 31. Among the viral moments on social media are marriage proposals and sign language interpreters giving their best. Another moment that ranks high on the best-of-moments scale is seeing homegrown musician Jasmine Sokko opening for the act at the National Stadium in front of a full-house crowd of 55,000 on Jan 23, 24, and 26.
Jasmine Sokko played in front of a crowd of 55,000 each night she opened for Coldplay’s Music Of The Spheres tour in Singapore.
The electronic pop singer burst onto the scene in 2016 when she was still a student at the Singapore Management University with her single 1057 and her high-impact cyber-futuristic aesthetic and hiding her face behind masks and visors. For her Coldplay gig, the 28-year-old was heavily influenced by inspiration from the world-building in games like Cyberpunk 2077. Sokko also incorporated elements of Asiafuturism, such as the graceful nuances of a traditional tea ceremony, to perform her single Cyber Ritual, dubbed “Cyber Tea Ritual.”
Sokko, who worked with stylist and creative director Josiah Chua, hairstylist Junz Loke, and makeup artist Larry Yeo on her wardrobe for the night, shared that one of the highlights of her performance was the 3D-printed chrome silver wings and forehead jewellery she donned on the final night of her performance. “The glam team and I joked about the look resembling the evolved version of a dragon-type Pokemon, Dragonair,” says Sokko, who recently revealed her visage behind the masks.
Jasmine Sokko has been unveiling more of her face from the masks she rocked in the early years of her music career.
“Significantly, I feel the headgear is also reflective of my progressive evolution and homage to my masked persona. The forehead jewellery piece also drew inspiration from the Jasmine flower and portrays an emblem in my own fictional world.”
Ahead, we get the details of the looks Sokko wore for her performances.
