C asean Consonant Advisors and Musicians


C asean Consonant, an ASEAN traditional ensemble, uses the universal language of music to build a bridge that intertwines ASEAN countries’ heritages together and, hence, create stronger bonds of understanding, friendship, and collaboration. 10 musical prodigies from 10 ASEAN countries are chosen to co-create captivating performances with traditional musical instruments in a series of C asean Consonant concerts. This project has become a platform for young generation to develop, share, learn, and preserve traditional music of ASEAN.

C asean Consonant will make young bloods of ASEAN become more aware of the beauty of preserving their local traditions and, at the same time, respect the differences. Emphasizing the importance to preserve their traditional music heritage, they will find the way to craft out our ASEAN identity amidst cultural diversity.
