Two musicians who will be making their debut at Clockenflap this year are Denise Ho Wan-see and Riz Farooqi of King Ly Chee.
They both started their careers in the 1990s: Ho’s began in 1996 when she won the 15th New Talent Singing Awards, and was mentored by the late Cantopop Queen Anita Mui Yuen-fong, while Fahrooqi started his heavy metal band three years later.
