DY-Logue: An Intimate Conversation Between Two Home-grown Ethnic Musicians
Sun Oct 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$28
DY-Logue is an experimental series which provides Ding Yi musicians an avenue to freely express their music artistry and musicianship. This upcoming first concert of the series features an imaginative tapestry between the two contrasting ethnic instruments — Chinese lute pipa and Malay lute gambus — played by Ding Yi Music Company’s musician, 2013 National Arts Council Young Artist Award recipient Chua Yew Kok, and award-winning, multi-talented musician and composer Azrin Abdullah respectively.
The performance will include a virtuosic pipa and gambus repertoire such as the Chinese ancient piece ‘King Chu Doffs His Armour’, and ‘Lil Ruh Hadith’ which is composed by Naseer Shamma.
This concert will also be facilitated by Ding Yi’s principal conductor Quek Ling Kiong, featuring a musical salon in an intimate setting with the two young home-grown musicians.
