本次《外韵潮音》节目，选择 “外江乐”与 “潮州乐” 对对碰，盼此能让大家对不同乐种同源根本有所了解。
In the earlier days, when our ancestors moved to Singapore from Chaoshan area in China, they brought in the traditional “Waijiang” music and “Waijiang” opera, which came from a long history of palace music and palace opera. It was passed from the North to the South of China to the Teochew area so it was called “Waijiang” music (literally “music from beyond the river”). And when it traveled to Guangdong, it was called “Han” music. For such ancient music, our Teochew ancestors constantly strived to change, improve and innovate to make it the new Teochew music that we know and hear today.
In Singapore, a lot of the amateur music troupes used to play “Waijiang” music. Later, with the rise of Teochew opera, Teochew music became mainstream. “Waijiang” music has then been fading out.
In this show, we are bringing back both “Waijiang” music and Teochew music, sharing the beauty of both music styles that share the same root.
