Preserving The Past Through Music

The Penang House of Music, one of the state's institutions of rich musical heritage, has announced that it will close its doors. This prompted a wave of responses from people, as well as the Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil, who said he would be looking into how best to help. We speak to Paul Augustin, musician and founder of the music house, on his decision to shut down, as well as what he hopes would happen now.
