This event is over.


Born and raised in Singapore, Wen Pei, who is currently based in Sydney, Australia, returns home to showcase her Mandarin and Hokkien originals. Teaming up with multi-instrumentalist Alex Paterson, experience an evening imbued with incandescence—a world masterfully crafted to be painfully direct, yet warm and inviting through a unique plainness in lyricism, and the delivery of wispy melodies that fold softly and intimately into one another. Wen Pei will perform For Grandma and Kin, amongst other songs she has composed over the last three years. 

Language: Mandarin, Hokkien

Tender and transcendent, Wen Pei’s music presents a lightness and simplicity. Yet, her songs are birthed from grief and determination. The 20 year-old artist leans into vulnerability and the messiness of feeling, catalysing her sensitivity for a purpose larger than herself. Wen Pei started writing Mandarin songs in 2018 and has since continued to pursue songwriting in her mother tongue, Hokkien. She is known for her songs For Grandma and Kin, and has performed in various spaces, including Seymour Centre in Sydney as part of Sydney Festival 2024, and the 2022 Hokkien Huay Kuan Folk Music Concert in Singapore.
