As the sun rises on Monday morning, artist and Himalayan singing bowl player Tsang Man-tung from Allpamama leads participants in a cathartic, dawn performance workshop involving 100 Himalayan singing bowls. As the sunlight moves over the Competition Pavilion in the Nursery Park, the soothing bell-like vibrations of the singing bowls quietly create a meditative atmosphere and help awaken the senses neglected in our everyday lives.
