趙增熹尋找廣東歌大台主
香港樂壇曾有一段輝煌的歲月:梅艷芳、陳百強、張國榮、譚詠麟等巨星及廣東歌樂隊誕生,接着繼承的有四大天王,唱K是朋友聚會、公司慶功的指定節目,幾乎人人都有一首屬於自己的「K歌」。但近年音樂產業衰落,大家不再唱K,掛在口邊的是「港歌已死」。
香港樂壇資深創作人趙增熹告訴你,在互聯網主宰全球娛樂事業的今天,只要你有一部電腦,就足以包辦製作、市場推廣和銷售。 誠如香港電影、香港電視劇,廣東話於本土流行文化中的地位無法取代──你有信心一同拯救廣東歌嗎?

The 1980s saw Cantopop enter its golden age. The genre’s greatest stars, including Anita Mui, Danny Chan, Leslie Cheung, and Alan Tam and many bands, emerged, followed by the Four Heavenly Kings. People embraced their idols through karaoke entertainment, and visiting KTV outlets was once an activity Hong Kong people enjoyed during leisure time. Since the mid-1990s, with the shrinking music industry, the sales of Cantopop have dropped drastically. It is not surprising to hear it said, ‘Cantopop is dead’.
In this talk, veteran music producer Chiu Tsang-hei will tell you that being a singer/song-writer has never been so easy. You can do the production, marketing and sales all by yourself in this digital era.
Cantopop is more than just pop songs. It is an irreplaceable vehicle for spreading our popular culture, such as Hong Kong movies and TV dramas. Let’s save Cantopop.
