For the Chinese, the lunar New Year is the biggest festival of the year that’s celebrated with great pomp and pageantry. From reunion dinners that see children and relatives returning from all corners of the country to partake in a family meal together to letting off noisy fireworks to herald the birth of a brand new year, the celebration is also deeply steeped in culture and customs that have stood the test of time.
Music is a universal language, able to unite people different backgrounds whether it is race, religion or nation. MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia 2012 shows this by its international lineup consisting of artists from different parts of the world.
