There are few defining moments that stand out in the timeline of modern Singapore, which have shaped our collective destiny. We go back to where it all began in 1819; to that poignant moment where Sir Stamford Raffles ("Raffles") discovered modern Singapore. He set his sights on the quiet, humble island, saw its strategic geographic location, and envisioned a grandiose and bustling trade hub. One man's vision, a momentous moment.
Underlined by a collection of live music scores, Hrdaya –Heartstrings is an attempt to capture the emotions and thoughts of Sir Stamford Raffles and draw parallels to present-day Singapore and its people.
