Ethnomusicology scholars have picked up my book SabahSongs: Contemporary Music In Sabah. 😀
The 5th symposium of the International Council of Traditional Music study group on Performing Arts Of South East Asia (PASEA) held their event in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah from 16-22 July 2018.
Thank you Yap KV for showing me these lovely photos. Yap was there with his friend, fellow musician Simon Kong. This is the interview with Simon, which appears in the book: Simon Kong – fusionist composer, Chinese orchestral music. It was originally in the blog by the same name.
Although my book is about contemporary music rather than traditional…maybe the Sabahan Musician will become a special ethnic group of its own! We always said there was something in the water…😁
