Synthesised jam session of traditional sounds

Born in Fujian, experimental musician Dickson Dee grew up listening to the province’s serene millennium-old Quanzhou nanyin music. After migrating to Hong Kong, he discovered the contrasting Cantonese “southern tone” of naamyam, hailing from the Qing dynasty. For this cutting-edge concert, Dee and his synthesiser remix music of influential Quanzhou nanyin performer Cai Yayi and naamyam artist Chan Chi-kong from Chinese music ensemble The Gong Strikes One, with additional collaborative synergy provided on stage by transmedia artist Milosh Luczynski, dancer Terry Tsang and poet Chris Song.
