About the Performance
Many early Hakka settlements formed around either big or small huofang ("kitchens" or "cookhouses"). Together inside Hakka huofang dwelt groups of people who were related by blood or surname. Due to particular lineal traditions and lifestyle requirements, clans developed different huofang ecologies. The traditions of each huofang had their own distinguishing features, mutually exchanging and assimilating all manner of traditional skills and talents, resulting in a rich and multivariate folk culture all circulated and handed down within Hakka settlements. This concert perforce invites people of all ages together in friendship to participate in penetrating the construction of Hakka music from generation to generation. At the same time, we invite our audience to feel the vitality of Hakka culture in an unending stream of light and joyful music.
