SMLC's Yoshiko Nakano hosts HKU Arts Talk on RTHK Radio 4
Date: 12 January 2008 (Saturday)

The School of Modern Languages and Cultures’ Yoshiko Nakano hosts HKU Arts Talk on RTHK Radio 4

As part of a series of RTHK 4 radio programmes featuring teachers from the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Arts taking turns to talk about music that relates to their life and work, Dr. Yoshiko Nakano will host a two-hour show entitled “Across Languages and Cultures” on Saturday, January 12, 2008, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

In order to reflect the School’s cultural diversity and her own research interests, which include intercultural communication and globalization, Dr. Nakano has chosen music by artists from 11 different countries. In keeping with the theme of transcending cultural boundaries, the programme features an eclectic combination of Japanese, Korean and French pop, a Brazilian guitar piece, and Stevie Wonder’s “Superwoman”. Other tracks selected showcase jazz and classical music compositions along with unusual interpretations of all-time favourites, including a funky ukulele version of George Harrison’s “While my guitar gently weeps”.
