‘What Are You Singing?’ Taiwan Liām Kua

GTF 2017
George Town Festival

The culture of storytelling exists in all of society, allowing for the passing on of tales and legends throughout generations. Combining elements of ballad-singing and the spoken word, Liām Kua is a traditional Taiwanese form of storytelling, brought to Penang with this performance. Presented by a cool granny playing the yueqin, ‘What Are You Singing?’ breathes modern life into the ancient art form.
