The research aims to investigate traditional Chinese music (Huayue) in Singapore. Although Huayue is a traditional artform, some of its practices encompass modern forms and traces of western influence. This project captures developments in the traditional artform that are new, creative and different from how it has been managed, taught and performed. It is an ethnographic research study compiled from the fieldwork conducted by musicians, performers, teachers, composers and arts managers.
