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!
