Nyonya refers to the Peranakans who are descendants of the Chinese settlers who married members of the indigenous populations in Malacca, Indonesia and Singapore. In recent years, more people have become curious about Peranakan culture with increased exposure through various mediums, and this concert will showcase this unique culture through music. Renowned Peranakan singer-songwriter Dick Lee will compose an oratorio based on his ancestor – Lee Kan’s story. New compositions in Peranakan culture by award-winning composers Xie Xiang Ming, Simon Kong and Chong Kee Yong will also be premiered in this concert.
