Dayung Sampan [Paddle Boat] (SA)
A sampan is known in Singapore and the region as a small wooden boat powered by paddling. The text in this version is about the journey of Mainland Chinese immigrants making their way to Singapore. The sampan was likely how these immigrants transferred from bigger ships anchored in the Straits of Singapore to the island's shore. Arranged for The Joyful Voices for the Singapore International Choral Festival 2017.
