理大游子吟创作歌曲演绎会

Last Friday, I went to 理大游子吟创作歌曲演绎会 (The Wanderers' Annual Live Concert) with Jacyn. What is The Wanderers', you wonders? Well, it's an musical organisation of sort outside the govern of USM where Chinese students gather around and sing and compose new songs. Every year, they will held a concert where the members will perform original songs live on stage. This year, which was their 18th year organising such concert, was held at Dewan Sri Pinang with the theme, 'Metamorphosis'.


The reason I went for it in the first place was as an act of support for my friends as few of my friends were performing in the concert. As it was strictly a Chinese show, all the people I saw was Chinese. If you have troubles understanding Chinese, you can just skip it. Luckily, my level of Mandarin is OK enough to understand what were they talking about during the sketches which were very entertaining. The same can't be said to the songs for I have no idea what were they singing about. What we did were just commenting on the singing, which some were very talented and some were just OK.

What both of us agreed was that the main entertaining value, for us la, was the sketches. It were filled with fun and the acting was believable. The best of them was Vivienne (wonders if I got spell wrongly???) which was very good. Though I don't know what most of them were singing, some of the songs composed were rather good. If I heard correctly, there were previous members whose works were picked and turned into record-breaking songs by Chinese singers such as Jolin Tsai. Hopefully, there will be another composer from the Wanderers that can break into the Chinese market.

One of the first performances...
The sketches which are funnier...

All in all, it was a pretty fun night.

There is a video I wanted to upload but it takes ages to do so. It was my friend, 永升, performance. Gonna try it later.

OK, I give up!!! Until I reached home, I won't try uploading that video anymore!!!
