A Demonstration Lecture on "Story Telling, Singing and Nanyin"

Nanyin is a narrative song art sung in the Cantonese dialect – or to be specific, in the standard vernacular of Guangzhou. It has been described as the Hong Kong version of the blues, as it narrates in song the hardships and vicissitudes in life. Gaining popularity in the early 1900's, it was the earliest version of ‘pop music' in Hong Kong. This genre of singing is characterised by its improvisatory nature, with several roles all sung by one singer. It has also blended into Cantonese Opera and Cantonese sung music as one of the vocal presentation formats. In this talk, the audience can have the opportunity to acquire a better knowledge and understanding of the art of nanyin through an interactive presentation by seasoned playwrights, composers and singers.

The Cantopop in the Qing Era?  a Talk on Nanyin and Yue'ou

Both nanyin and yue'ou belong to the narrative song art that flourished in the mid-Qing period in Canton (Guangzhou today). While nanyin is still being performed by many virtuosi and is often featured as arias in Cantonese Opera, yue'ou seem to exist more in text form as lyrics rather than as song. Only a few yue'ou notations remain in relatively intact form today, and even less recordings have survived. In this lecture, the speaker will make use of historical archives and sound recordings to explore the history of nanyin and yue'ou, and identify the relationship between the two from a linguistic perspective.
