This week on Asian Music Mondays your hosts Lulu and Tie bring you a special Chinese/Taiwanese playlist in commemoration of Qing Ming Jie, also known as Chinese Memorial Day or Ancestors’ Day that occurred yesterday.

It is a day of remembering past ancestors and cleaning graves and worship of the dead. The holiday can seem confusing as the direct translation suggests “Pure Brightness Festival” or “Clear and Bright Festival” which may imply a spring happiness holiday and not a holiday to pay respects to ancestors.

You will hear selections from TANK, JJ Lin and Jay Chow. You won’t want to miss this week of Asian Music Mondays on Impact Radio!

Tune into this week’s playlist on impact89fm.org and follow us on social media for weekly updates on your Asian entertainment news!

On this day families gather to spend time together and eat qingtuan, a green dumpling made of glutinous rice and barley grass. In Taiwan, caozaiguo or shuchugo is eaten.
