The concert features a series of traditional Cantonese instruments, including gaohu and xylophone. Gaohu is one of the major instruments used in traditional Cantonese music. With its intensely lyrical sound, the gaohu is often used for highly expressive musical passages. By contrast, the xylophone’s sound is wooden, yet bright and clear.

Cantonese music is a romantic take on Cantonese, with performances conjuring poetic imagery. Take the plucked-string ensemble’s 'The Dancing Droplets on the Lotus' as an example. This piece depicts a duet between the water drops and the lotus. On a mid-summer day, after the rain, the lotus petals and leaves are covered by a multitude of raindrops. A nice breeze comes, the and the raindrops start dancing along with the lotus, an ecstatic ode to a mid-summer day.

高德娱乐代理The concert will be held at the Experimental Theater, a small and cozy venue with only 350 seats and amazing acoustics, aiming to bring the audience close to the performance. Without amplifiers or electronic sound effects, this concert will bring the audiences closer to the original sound of Cantonese folk.
