Artist Information

Siong Leng Musical Association

Siong Leng Musical Association (SLMA) was established in 1941 and owes much of its success to its late chairman, Mr Teng Mah Seng, a Cultural Medallion recipient who worked hard to reform and revive nanyin. Under his guidance, SLMA has become a recognisable arts company known for its preservation and promotion of nanyin. Since Mr Teng’s passing, SLMA has kept true to its mission and has cultivated a group ofnanyin professionals over the years. It aims for nanyin music to be recognised on international stages and to create more exposure for traditional and contemporary nanyin music through performances as well as education and outreach initiatives.
