Music Salon: S/ash Music Lovers
Music Salon:S/ash Music Lovers
By Chi Chung/HKU music lovers/HK music friends…
 
When we are asked to fill in our favourite music genres when joining some music portals, we are more than likely to fill in a bunch of genres and artist names.  The popularisation of social media and music sharing sites have definitely further opened up our music spectrum and tastes. Some might call it hybridists. With the rise of Slash Generations, we are more prone to be multi-tasking and embracing more different cultures. Let’s share our favourite music with vinyl, CD or phone on a Pro-DJ and audiophile sound system in a cosy room with a view of greens and squirrels.
 
Music is about sharing and connecting; liberating and empowering. Everyone can be leaders as well as followers.
