Programme Synopsis

NEW! DIGITAL FORMAT AVAILABLE TO SCHOOLS This programme is now adapted to allow students to view the selected programme online/digitally. Students will be given an in-depth understanding of Xinyao – how it began, how it rose in popularity, and how it started to fade away, and also how it has currently evolved to become a modern-day music phenomenon that is rising in popularity once again. And this will also open up a debate on ‘What is Xinyao?’, making students question and google more about Xinyao and what it really means. The presentation will be done in a fun and interesting manner, with narration by a central narrator, and singing performances by a group of singers. This will be done in a video format, much like a Youtube video presentation, with subtitles to ensure that students are able to understand the content of the video better. Here is a brief breakdown of the 30 minute video presentation: 1) Learn about the Xinyao Campus Folk Song Movement, as well as singing and sharing about the songs by a narrator and the 2-3 singers 2) Development of Xinyao over the years 3) What are the Characteristics of a Xinyao Song? 4) Learning about Important Xinyao Pioneers like Eric Moo, Dr Liang Wern Fook 5) Highlight the differences in lyrics themes and genre of songs between songs during Xinyao and Post-Xinyao phases 6) Perform a number of Xinyao songs for the students to appreciate
