Every Life Is A Song
Every life deserves a song of their own. With this belief, singer-songwriter Vicky Fung and lyricist Chow Yu Fai launched the social enterprise “Every Life Is A Song” (“ELIAS”) to make songs about the lives of different communities, hoping that eventually the songs will accumulate into a catalogue charting the history of our city.
This first project, co-presented by “ELIAS” and TAI KWUN, aims to offer an opportunity for younger generations to experience an organic approach to music-making music while revisiting the values behind Tai Kwun’s revitalisation. To this end, 36 participants passionate about music, words, and visual art were recruited to step into the city to explore the stories of our community and to make songs about them.
Prior to each of the three afternoon shows scheduled for October, “ELIAS” will invite these young creators to introduce the stories behind the songs and share their experiences of the creative process.
