👉🏼 ASSOY 10.1 : Ariel present SUARRASA 2 feat Ming Poon (Asian Performing Art Lab) 🤖

For the second edition of Ssuarrasa, Ariel had a delightful conversation with Ming Poon from the Asian Performing Art Lab over a meal of nasi lemak that Ariel prepared. The meal featured Minangkabau's grilled chicken, martabak tofu, sambal goreng tempeh, and grilled pak choi. These dishes sparked an eclectic discussion about Singapore's complex history and identity, with a particular focus on the "Peranakan" theme. The episode was accompanied by tunes from Sheila Majid and SUN EYE :  featuring music that explores the idea of what would have happened if the early immigrants of Singapore were invested in combining all the influences from the countries they came from into a musical collage of reinvented ideas, while carrying the responsibilities of the culture and history that informs the music. The conversation later shifted to Ming's past, present, and future practices in dance, performing arts, and the Asian (artist) community in Germany.
