Singer-songwriter Emmy the Great shares the story of a life-changing trip to China through music and performance. She is joined by Dfu, one of Xiamen’s finest musicians and sound artists.
In 2017, Emmy visited China for the first time as part of a residency run by the British
Council and the PRS Foundation. As a half-Chinese woman, she assumed an instinct for the country her grandparents came from.
Arriving in Xiamen, Fujian Province, she discovered that she was wrong, as each day
revealed an unexpected new facet of modern China. Living on a small pedestrian-only island called Gulangyu, she began interviewing local people, trying to build a picture of Xiamen, one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Supported by British Council UK-China Connections Through Culture.
