In Hong Kong, the population of those who are 65 or above reached 1.27 million in 2018 and according to the survey conducted by a local NGO, most older people find their life boring and meaningless. As majority of the retirees have not well prepared and planned for their retirement, they may slowly withdraw from the community.  

 

Through this one-year project, we hope to help elderly to develop a new interest and facilitate cross-generation cohesion between the old and younger generations through learning body percussion and creating music together.
