MUSIC
World Music Weekend Pre-concert Talk
Talk

HKAF 2017 will present three world music artists of different styles and genres from around the world: Spaniard María Berasarte is the first artist to sing fado in Castilian; Malian Ballaké Sissoko is an acclaimed kora player, a 21-string lute-bridge-harp; and Kudsi Erguner from Turkey plays the ney, a Turkish reed-flute. In this pre-concert talk, Prof. Chuen-fung Wong, a scholar in ethnomusicology, will give insights into this music from Spain, Mali and Turkey.

 

Speaker: Prof. Chuen-fung Wong (Associate Professor, Department of Music, Hong Kong Baptist University)
