SIU2 From China To Perform At Borneo Jazz

KUCHING, April 28, 2011 - From the Orient, we will have SIU2, performing at the Borneo Jazz 2011. SIU2 has launched Chinese jazz into a totally new realm.

Hong Kong's Ng Cheuk-yin is a sheng (mouth-organ) wizard, taking this five thousand year old instrument well into the 21st Century, producing an unimaginably rich and unique new jazz sound. SIU2 augments the traditional jazz rhythm section of bass, drums, and piano with other traditional Chinese instruments such as the sanxien and the zheng. Yet world music this is not, it is pure jazz!.

Powerful, inventive, enticing, and aggressive, their music takes you into exciting new sonic spaces, yet with a familiar framework. Their concerts and CDs are a ground-breaking melting pot of musical genres from the East and West which serves as a sonic portrayal of the juxtaposition of disparate cultural elements in Hong Kong. SIU2 welcome you to a new world of jazz.

Borneo Jazz 2011 takes place in Miri from 12-15 May 2011. It has been extended to a 4 day event and with artists hailing from every corner of the globe - India, China, Japan, France, Brazil, Holland, Australia, United States, Canada & Malaysia - Borneo Jazz 2011 is truly an international event. You can expect thousands to converge at the Park City Everly Hotel, the event's venue, where a specially built stage will be situated next to the beach. Currently in its sixth year and rebranded as Borneo Jazz, we promise festival-goers will enjoy the showcases to be held against a picturesque setting next to the sea.
