Xinyao 新谣 (shorthand for ‘新加坡年轻人创造的歌谣’) is a genre of songs that is unique to Singapore. The songs are composed and sung with simple, folksy tunes by young Singaporeans about life in Singapore. The Xin Yao: The Next Generation《新谣之星》is a singing competition targeted at youths aged 14 to 24 from Secondary Schools, JCs, Polytechnics, ITE, the Art Schools and Universities. It gives tribute to the Xinyao songs created between 1980s to 1990s and encourages youths to appreciate Xinyao songs in a different way through their performances.
