HongKong as a metropolitan that welcomes all cultures, its local Cantonese culture has been somewhat forgotten. Remaining unimproved in the last decade, the local music industry was almost dead. Nobody cared about it and young people barely listened to Cantonese music.
As the 2019 protest unites the HongKong citizens, they started to realize how critical it is to protect their own culture. Young musicians there start to produce more songs in Cantonese. Because of their efforts, Cantonese songs start to get multi-millions of hit rates on youtube and the entertainment industry finally starts to boom again.
Inspired by all of these, I am designing concept covers for the Cantonese songs that I have been listening to. This process helps me to stay relevant to the culture that I admire and hope to contribute.
