A song from centuries past: X
I by Siong Leng Musical Association
Travel 2,000 years back in time with this music recording by the young performers of Singapore’s Siong Leng Musical Association. The group is dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional Chinese music such as Nanyin (“southern music” in Chinese). The music genre, which originated as court music during the Han Dynasty in China, is listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2009.
This performance features a novel arrangement of the traditional Nanyin piece, “Fei Fei Sa Sa”, and it is adapted from the Nanyin Suite, “Ji Xiang Feng.”
