Midweek Movers #060: Selected by Pagoda Arts

Yep, we’re here again! Purgatory, limbo, the netherworld that is the Middle of the Week. 

But fear not – this is where we step in with a handful of delightful ditties to fend off those Wednesday woes! So put that coffee cup down, plug your earphones in and take a step outside. 

Hand-picked in-house and by our hosts, these tracks have only one common denominator: to release that dopamine. And if you dance hard enough, it’ll soon be Friday… 

Following a cracking Mornings With show on MDR as part of our celebration of East Asian and South East Asian Heritage Month, we chat with Pagoda Art’s chief executive, Zi Lan Liao! Pagoda Arts is a community organisation that introduces Chinese Culture to a wide and diverse community. Zi Lan is also one of the leading exponents of Chinese music and part of Pagoda Youth Orchestra, a vital hub for Liverpool’s Chinese community for over 40 years. Zi Lan’s busy career on the international concert circuit has resulted in her being the most widely heard and best appreciated performer on the Gu-Zheng worldwide – listen back to her Mornings With show here and check out her Midweek Movers below!
