On June 28 2016, Lingnan Garden in collaboration with Global University invited Sun Heng, Secretary-general of Migrant Workers Home in Beijing, to visit Lingnan University and hold the 'Folk Songs of the Land Sing-Chat Session'. Sun Heng started voluntary performance tours around China in late 20th century. His songs reflect the life and work of migrant workers and are deeply loved by the public. In this session, not only did Sun Seng perform his songs accompanied by his own guitar, he also chatted and exchanged with the audience about the current situation of the new workers in China and expounded on the theme of workers’ dignity.
Lingnan Garden also invited veteran Shakuhachi musician Erebus Wong, pianist Chen Yu Ting and Hong Kong folk song singer Billy to perform, and they brought exciting performances to the audience. About 50 people attended the activity and there were enthusiastic discussions at the scene.
