Estate Frequencies: Tiong Bahru Episode 1

Estate Frequencies by Estate Frequencies

Episode notes

We begin in Tiong Bahru, Singapore’s first purpose-built residential housing estate. It is home to a 100-year-old temple dedicated to a Monkey God, Art Moderne architecture and a World War II air-raid shelter. Estate Frequencies is a creative podcast that explores city neighbourhoods. History, heritage, personal memory and poetry are woven together for a special aural experience.
