[Chinese Oldies Series]
18/19/20 APRIL 9.00pm
Bui Yik Ling & Lim Yee Fen
A nostalgic light-hearted evening awaits you with folk songs from the mid-70s. Many of these international hits emerged out of a surge in song writing interest among young elites and college students in Taiwan. This music genre is infused with optimism, simplicity, youthfulness and naivetivity. Their common characteristic – in songs like Olive Tree (橄榄树), Childhood (童年) and Country Road 乡间的小路 – is their accompaniment by piano and acoustic guitar
Yik Ling received her Masters from the Birmingham Conservatoire, UK while Yee Fen graduated from the UCSI University. They were former National Grand Champions in Classical Singing.
