Stories of Independence

8:30 – 10:00 pm | Aug 26th
Concert Stage | Harbourfront Centre

The songs that define our heritage and our struggles tell stories rooted in the people and the community. More than politics, more than history, music is an experience of culture and identity that continues to echo across oceans. What is the sound of independence? Some of the familiar tunes Taiwanese people thought were their own turned out to have originated from Indonesia; many Malaysian-Chinese artists have their careers kick started in Taiwan.  Let’s listen together as we kick off our Dialogue with Indonesia and Malaysia.
