The Hong Kong music scene is typically a mixture of both traditional and popular modern genres. While pop and classical music from abroad is popular in Hong Kong as well, the city has developed its own distinct genres which tend to preside over cultural life.
Even though Western classical music is not native to the city, it still has its fair share in the Hong Kong music scene. There are regular classical music concerts throughout the city, and most are very reasonably priced.
At 17, Sunny Lukas has already established himself as a successful pop star in his native Hong Kong. His latest release, a cover of Despacito, has gained some noticeable traction on YouTube. Now based in LA, Sunny is about to break out in a big way.
The comparisons he’s drawn to Justin Bieber are fitting, as he’s also a singer/songwriter who’s gifted at the piano and guitar. In addition, Sunny can also play the ukulele. DJ Khaled, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran have all influenced his sound— a mixture of R&B, pop, dance, hiphop with a unique HK spin.
This eclectic blend of different styles is owed partially to his proclivity for international flavor—in addition to speaking English, Cantonese, and Mandarin, Sunny is currently learning Spanish, French, Italian, and Russian.
Sunny’s flair for fashion has already made waves in HK. He describes his style as “chic, sleek, street” with a bit of “grunge & rock and roll” thrown in for good measure.
In the works for Sunny is his debut release, featuring work by Hitboy, Drew Ryan Scott and 1500 or Nothin.
