Discovering Malaysian Folk Music with Philharmonic Winds of Malaysia

Philharmonic Winds of Malaysia (PWM) was founded by a group of passionate musicians, and is a wind orchestra consisting of professional orchestral musicians, jazz soloists, freelance musicians, music educators and tertiary music students. Their repertoire includes original and transcribed wind band works that cover various types of music genres such as classical, contemporary, film and pop music. But in their latest upcoming concert, they are taking on the genre of Malaysian folk music - compositions and resources which are said to be sorely lacking for wind music bands. We find out all about this from Eric Lee, the Artistic Director and conductor of PWM, and also Alex Tsok, the concertmaster of the upcoming performance titled, "Discovering Malaysian Folk Music with PWM."
