If the nightlife scene is too saturated with bands and club nights for you, here’s an esoteric alternative to cure that blasé feeling: Hong Kong native Hakgwai is heading to art space FINDARS for a live performance and a workshop on one of his choice folk instruments – Australia’s wind instrument, the didgeridoo. Lau – his real name – is known for melding traditional music with electronica that would see Chinese instruments like erhu and pipa as well as other indigenous instruments from other countries, like the aforementioned didgeridoo, blending into synthesisers and beats. His 2014 self-titled debut record is the perfect exemplar of this East meets West ethos – no wonder the man has been a mainstay at some of the biggest arts and music festivals such as Clockenflap, Freespace Fest, and Australia Day. The live show will be joined by local oddball acts Sudarshan and Kok Siew Wai, as well as LED + fire poi performers Lulu & Pablo (Shanghai).
Date Saturday 13 February ’16 (live performance) / Sunday 14 February ’16 (didgeridoo workshop)
Time 8pm (live performance) / 5pm (didgeridoo workshop)
Cover RM30 (performance + workshop)
