Talk on Traditional Hakka Wedding Ceremonies: Bridal Laments

The custom of "crying" prevailed in rural marriages in the New Territories. Brides sang "bridal laments" before and during the wedding ceremony. There were no standard lyrics for the laments, but they usually expressed the bride's sadness about being  separated from her family and friends, and no longer being able to serve her parents with filial piety. Dr. Stephen Cheung, Chairman of the Association for Conservation of Hong Kong Indigenous Languages, will introduce some of the lyrics of Hakka bridal laments, as well as the meaning and emotions conveyed in them.
