Siu2

SIU2, a locally bred band, presents you a novel experience of Hong Kong music with their original and unique style. Their works challenge people’s inherent concept about Chinese music and create a new genre fusing modern and traditional, Chinese and western elements.

SIU2’s band members are Yin Ng (composition, Sheng, Chinese percussion, keyboard), Cass Lam (Sanxian), Jason Lau (Zheng), Peter Fan (Piano), Liang Chun Wai (Bass) and Lawrence Tsui (drumset)

SIU2: Shenging It Up in Hong Kong

Read "SIU2: Shenging It Up in Hong Kong" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It shouldn't really come as a great surprise that China hasn't produced an abundance of jazz musicians, while neighboring Japan continues to turn them out at a great rate of knots, given the very different histories the two countries have lived post World War II. The traumatic Cultural Revolution, under Mao Zedong, shunned all things western, ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
