Yeung Oi Mei
Fascinated by the holistic use of the body and keeping one breath stable in order to produce resonated drum beats during Taiko performance, Yeung Oi Mei started to learn Taiko from Virginia Chu since 2018. Yeung is working for a Hong Kong feminist group to promote gender equality and advocate for policy changes.

Evan Binkley (From Ohio, short term New Yorker, long term expat in Cheung Chau, Hong Kong) is a multi media story teller who shirks the clean, perfectionistic and tech based current trends and relishes hands on chaotic fraternizing with repurposed materials and implausibly functioning designs. He strives for the looseness of the margin doodle, while embellishing every free space with unexpected accoutrements. These days he primarily makes instruments marginally defined as ukuleles, turns hand drawings into animation, and tells empathetic and often humorous tales of the characters he meets in his daily life using poetry, paint, and song.
Music: The Poet's Pavilion at Twilight
