Classics from Asia presents the fine music of Asian civilisations, including practices with their roots in literati, court, folk, and early modern cosmopolitan music-making.

Almost a century after the end of colonialism, the dust of Eurocentric thinking still weighs heavily on many musical minds. Classics from Asia is a new monthly program that focuses on the classic and art music of Asia, and will challenge the attitude that ‘fine music’ is just from the European cultural tradition.

Classics from Asia is a monthly special from Sunday’s Explorations Listen Live to our first program this Sunday, 11th February at 6:00pm (on the 2nd Sunday of the month), or Listen Anytime.
