About this event

Tune in to your favourite xinyao artists in this virtual performance! Catch Cai Yiren’s recollection about xinyao’s past and present before the artistes take over to perform our favourite hits from this iconic era of Singaporean music!

Meet Cai Yiren!

Hello everyone, my name is Cai Yiren and I love xinyao! For me, xinyao is timeless and precious because it is not just about music but its spirit. It is that spirit of authorship (原创精神) and authenticity that defines xinyao as a Singaporean music, bringing Singaporeans together through shared experiences and stories.

I have been working to revitalise xinyao for over two decades through concerts, seminars, and outreach programmes in schools. For the older generation, I hope this virtual concert takes you back to the good old days and for the younger generation, I hope hearing these tunes will inspire you to carry on our uniquely Singaporean sound!

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of My Rhyme and Rhythm: Xinyao with Cai Yiren

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
