This concert is a tribute to the generation who lived in the golden time of the Chinese oldies from the 1940s – 1970s. These melodies were familiar to many of them as the songs provided an avenue of comfort during the hard times of that era. Back in those days, they were an affordable form of entertainment provided through the radio or the Rediffusion. Hence, these songs are also reminiscent of their lives.
The fact that some of these oldies remain popular till today is clear evidence of their timeless beauty and meaning. Hence these music and songs should not just be appreciated and enjoyed by the pioneer generation but should also be a source of inspiration for the younger generations. They could, through the lyrics and music of these Chinese oldies, share a better understanding of the love and the life of their ancestors’ generation.
