"Singing Nanyin as We Go"

Nanyin is a song art sung in the Cantonese vernacular, which was a kind of popular music for the people of Hong Kong around the beginning of the 20th century. Today, nanyin has become part of our intangible cultural heritage and was inscribed onto the first Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong.

The Intangible Cultural Heritage Office invited the troupe group "The Gong Strikes One" to perform traditional nanyin repertoires with new lyrics specially composed for 18 districts of Hong Kong. From January 2019 to June 2020, The Gong Strikes One will tour Hong Kong's 18 districts and use nanyin to recount the history of local communities and to bring in-depth cultural insights.
