Hangad na ipagdiwang ang iba't ibang kultura sa Australia, nabuo ang "Sound of Christmas from Asia Pacific" album - pinagsama sa unang pagkakataon ang mga awiting pamasko na inawit sa magkakaibang wika.

"Through this Christmas album, we want to reach out to those people who are feeling lonely and we wanted to get a range of diversity to re-sing some Christmas classic songs in their language," ani Kevin Bathman, co-producer ng Sound of Christmas from Asia Pacific.

Makabuluhang Pasko

Naisakatuparan ang 'Sound of Christmas from Asia Pacific' sa tulong ng City of Sydney at nabuo ito sa gitna ng mahigpit na mga lockdown sa Sydney noong Hunyo.

“When Benjamin Oh and I, who’s also the co-producer for this album, were having a chat about six months about we spoke about how there’s  a lack of multilingual projects. So we put in an grant application to the City of Sydney’s Matching Grant program,” pagbabahagi ng co-producer na si Kevin Bathman.

"We feel that Christmas has now really taken a religious but also secular event end-of- the-year celebration and I think many people actually use this time to reflect and also celebrate their loved-ones and their community."

"Christmas can also be quite a difficult and lonely time for many people especially if they are marginalised or they are separated from their loved ones or community."

“We decided to pursue this musical project and release it closer to Christmas. But lockdowns happened from June to October. We feel that this project has a lot of challenges in a sense that we were recording the music and engaging with everyone while everyone was at home and in lockdown.”

Ang Matching Grant program ng  City of Sydney ay hangad na pasiglahin ang mga organisasyon at komunidad sa Sydney na magsagawa ng mga proyekto na makakapagpatibay ng relasyon ng iba't ibang komunidad.
