Chuen Lung is one of the remaining Hakka villages in Hong Kong. Like many others, villagers hardly ever speak Hakkanese anymore.
Chun has picked this nearly forgotten culture up. Tapping into the villagers’ shared pastime, singing, he has made a Hakkaoke installation that features Hakkanese songs and it successfully appealed to the younger generation who becomes more willing to speak the language.
Follow Chun to Chuen Lung and learn more about the cultural aspects of this popular tourist spot. There are more stories to tell!

Chun graduated from the School of Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong. He works with a range of media, such as sound and video. Earlier works such as Voice from the Root, tap into his own Hakka background. He often draws inspiration from sound recordings he takes while spending time with others.
He is one of the participating artists in Hi! Hill, organised by Art Promotion Office and curated by MaD. In Chuen Lung, he joined villagers in their favourite pastime and learned Hakkanese from them. Currently, he works with villagers to compile and produce a full album of Hakkaoke.
