26 Jul (Sat): A Night of Nanyin at Kusu Island

Join us for a night of Nanyin or “songs from the south”, with a difference. This musical performance is usually held only during the ninth lunar month, but by special arrangement for SHF, the Siong Leng Musical Association (established 1941) will hold an evening performance of their repertoire of Hokkien nanyin music at the Tua Pek Kong Temple on Kusu Island.
The visit will included a guided tour of the temple and the keramat, and a simple vegetarian meal at the temple. Special guest speaker Chan Chow Wah will also explain and interpret the music and the history of the temple. The tour will be conducted in English.

In Partnership with: Yumei & Marcus
Tour guide: Victor Yue and Chan Chow Wah
