Born in Hong Kong and grew up in Canada, composer Simon Chung shares in his work the profound interest and fascination he has in the roots of his Chinese background.  In juxtaposing eastern and western themes, musical ideas are playfully discovered, explored, and amalgamated in an imaginary saga.  The word “XiFu” (pronounced approximately SeeFu in Cantonese) offers a tribute to the accent world as well as our connections to that.
