Melodies of Mid-Autumn
Let your eyes and ears take you to another world as yIN Harmony, Two Four and Six Fusion, RaghaJazz and Dicapella Dizi Ensemble present to you a selection of familiar songs with a traditional and fusion spin.
Dicapella is a congregation of Singapore’s top award-winning dizi (bamboo flute) soloists and is currently the largest bamboo flute ensemble in South-east Asia. Dynamic and versatile, the group’s repertoire extends beyond traditional Chinese music, to include jazz, Chinese pop, western classical and English oldies, among others. The youthful group, with an average age of only 19-years-old, has staged several energetic outreach programmes in heartlands that have been well-received.
Presenting a wild blend of ragas, jazz harmony, groovy rhythms & modern interpretations with traditional instruments, RaghaJazz redefines perspectives of sound and rediscovers new musical possibilities through original and exciting compositions.
Two Four and Six Fusion is a Singapore based fusion band with its name conceptualised by the number of strings on each instrument; showcasing the two-stringed Chinese fiddle, Erhu, the four-stringed Chinese Lute, Pipa, and the six-stringed Western Guitar. The confluence of Asian and Western elements brings forth a unique blend of sound, highly distinguishable in various genre of music; with the core value of the band's musicking to emote merriment in their craft.
yIN Harmony is a multi-ethnic music group whose vision is to infuse various cultural instruments together on a singular platform to reflect the multiracial facet of Singapore. The notion of getting elements deriving from different ethnic groups is crucial to a national identity, and it unifies cultural thread in our urban music landscape, which they hope to inspire through their music.
