Ethni-city aims to explore and share the rich and unique ethnic cultures of Singapore via collaborations with various multi-disciplinary artists. In this inaugural edition, SA the collective, along with collaborators Okestar Trio and Nizar Fauzi, will be presenting original and reinterpreted work on their ethnic instruments in celebration of Malay ethnicity and culture. Coinciding with the month of Hari Raya, Racial Harmony and National Day celebrations, this hour-long performance seeks to present the unbinding and converging of cultural expressions through music, hospitality and art.

Joining the musicians will be ILA, visual artist, whose work explores feelings of decline and detachment in relation to mother tongues through expressions in Jawi and Malay.
