GCHC1057 Chinese Popular Music: Its Cultural and Musical Meanings

(Translation) The most interesting part of the course is that we all listen to music in the class together. Even though it’s a 3-hour lecture, time flies while we laughed and clapped hands. Besides music elements, we also study the lyrics and the cultural meaning of the songs, e.g. whether the lyrics have any hidden political background or ironic messages, etc.
In this course, I got in touch with different types of music, mainly from HK, Mainland and Taiwan. There were both old and new songs, pop or indie music. Students could explore their favorite types of music while learning how to appropriate other kinds of music. It’s so meaningful.
