Abstract:
Alex Abisheganaden (b. 31 January 1926, Singapore–) is a musician who received the Cultural Medallion in 1988. He is Singapore’s first home-grown classical guitarist and double bassist, and has dedicated much of his life educating and popularising the performance of music on the guitar. Although his full-time career was in education, he developed an enviable reputation as a highly versatile musician, equally adept in classical, popular and traditional genres.
