“I want to play music that lifts your spirit, songs that bring your focus back to the beautiful things in life that we forget as we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the world around us.”
Music has the power to reach across boundaries, spreading joy and understanding like nothing else can. As a musical ambassador, fiddler for peace Kailin Yong believes in the power of music to help bring peace and understanding to the world—and he has dedicated his music to promote causes of sustainability and harmony.
Kailin’s music is rooted in his exploration of the different cultures of the world, bringing charming melodies from many lands home to share. A graduate of the Vienna Academy of Music, the Singapore native came to the United States in 1999. In his musical travels, Kailin has played everywhere from the streets of San Francisco to the hallowed symphony halls of Europe, in tiny cafés and at open-air festivals, with youth orchestras and Middle Eastern ensembles.
As co-founder of the eclectic neo-roots band Boulder Acoustic Society and Brazilian quartet Beco do Choro, Kailin regularly performs with these and a diverse array of musical acts. Most recently, his composition “Does It Really Matter?” won an Independent Music Award for Americana Song of the Year. Now, Kailin releases his solo debut Bowing with the Flow, sharing his musical journey from the past decade … with hints of the future.
“Through music, we discover that there is no ‘them and us,’ and the reality of our all being connected as one becomes clear. This is the vision put forth in Kailin Yong''s music. We hear the musical styles of the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the Americas … Everyone finds a welcome.”
