Part I: SIFOM Ensemble / Marlon Chen
In Portrait of a Composer, composer Syafiqah 'Adha Sallehin will present her latest chamber music compositions – including a work for three flutes, and a String Quartet. Some of the finest young musicians from the SIFOM Ensemble will be performing these compositions.

Part II: Syafiqah 'Adha Sallehin featuring Bhumi Collective
A story of good triumphing over evil, the story of Ikan Girl reminds one of patience and kindness and the perils of engaging in evil acts especially the mistreatment of a fellow being. Inspired by a Malay ancient poem known as the Syair Bidasari, this story will be presented in the form of a multidisciplinary performance that incorporates movement vocabulary from Malay dance, bharatanatyam and contemporary dance genres. It will also feature original music composed collaboratively and performed 'live' by classical and traditional musicians.
