From Cantonese Goldminers to Tan Dun: The Transmission of Chinese Musical Culture in New Zealand

Gong Hong-yu;Unitec Institute of Technology;  
The musical encounters between China and New Zealand from the latter part of the nineteenth century onwards form one of the most intriguing chapters in the history of Sino- New Zealand cultural relations. Yet there is remarkably little literature on it. This article aims to fill this scholarly lacuna by providing a broad- brushed account of the transmission of Chinese musical culture in New Zealand from the 1860 s to the present. It will have a three- fold focus: process,agency,and change. The emphasis here is on the role of Chinese music making in social engagement and maintaining cultural identity,rather than on music itself.
