In the late nineteenth to early twentieth centuries, Chinese merchants occupied a special position in many British or ex-British colonies, such as the Northern Territory (‘the Territory’) of South Australia, as facilitators of labour supply and trade and as leaders and representatives of Chinese communities. They were recognised in these capacities by governments through exemptions from immigration regulations. The lack of restrictions on Chinese immigration to the Territory until 1888 enabled Chinese merchants to establish Chinatown and, in some cases, business networks that were transnational and transfamilial.

In this second response to the global pandemic, IAC Research Fellow Dr Nicholas Ng has curated a collection of original music written by himself in collaboration with various musicians to help relax the mind and create feelings of peace and calm.
