Siong Leng's Annual Multi-sensory Nanyin Banquet II

Siong Leng is having its annual gala performance again. This time, something more exciting to all the senses will be presented. This is also an event where the Association raises funds to help its year long programme of promoting Nanyin and training young people on the performance which includes playing the traditional musical instrument (which have remained unchanged for more than a thousand years).

If you enjoy this rare and ancient music, or even want to see what it is all about (you will not be disappointed, you might get a gentle culture shock, perhaps), this is the event to go to. Gather your friends and form a table and enjoy the night of ancient music, songs and food.
