THE FULFILLED LIFE OF THE MUSIC TALENT
探索音樂才女的充實生活 江海迦 AGA
The participation of various joyful activities during hot summer helps to enrich yourself, relieve annoying heat and balance the busy life schedule. Famous female pop singer Agatha Kong (Aga) understands this principle deeply, she enjoys friends gathering events at free time while preparing her brand-new music album busily. Her dedication towards lifestyle also reflect in her attitude toward career.
KEEN ON PHYSICAL AND SEDENTARY ACTIVITIES
When I watch TV or online video, Aga’s low and poised voice makes me believe she loves static activities. My answer is 50% correct, the young singer-songwriter is also an avid sport lover “For the scorching moment right now, I usually hangout with friends at beach and play water sports, especially Wakeboard — it gives an exciting and carefree sensation. I love running too, and it refreshes and energizes my whole body and mind. Besides, I love watching movies at home, or hanging out with friends during song composing moment, in order to create a work life balance.” Aga claims she loves both dynamic and static activities, as she can share joyfulness with friends “When everyone is participating on one activity (no matter sport game or travelling), it enriches our life experience and broaden our vision. The conversation from the participation process also inspires the others’ thinking. I like explore and learn new things too, they often inspire me to learn new knowledge and write songs. That is very meaningful!”
FAVOUR ON UNIQUE TASTE
There are so many formats of friend’s activities, sometimes the friends will invite Aga to enjoy a chill moment quietly at a charismatic bar “The relaxed music played by the bar — Jazz and Bossa Nova are easy to create a pleasant atmosphere. Moreover, a sip of a classic cocktail plays a great combination with the music.” Normally, girls prefer sweet cocktails, but these are not the favourable types for this talented singer “I love cocktail with beautiful aroma, slightly strong and complex taste. It has a unique charisma that is not similar to the normal sweet cocktails. I always love Old Fashioned, it has a significantly balanced structure of bitterness and sweet. It is a wonderful drink.”
THE DEVOTION ON NEW MUSIC STYLE
Having sport activities, hanging out and chat at a bar with friends are able to keep Aga relax, and enable her to devote music talent and time for the preparation of new album. Recently she has been very busy to collaborate with different music professionals, in order to apply more music techniques and styles, such as her last hit song《3AM》adds Rap and Japanese music style. For the latest song《Mercy of You》adapts with dark theme, is a newly bold attempt for Aga “ This song is about a person who still linger at the swirl of sorrow after breakup with ex-lover. Albert Leung (The renowned Hong Kong lyricist) writes the lyric with an extremely painful message. As I have never sung a dark story before,《Mercy of You》is very satisfied my desire of songwriting innovation.” Aga claims that the-soon-to-be-released songs will exude with new music style likes R&B and Jazz, which has cost her and other musician with lots of time to finish the composing, lyrics and music arrangement. The enthusiastic singer wishes people will love her new songs, in fact there are numerous young music lovers admire and discuss her song everytime when it launches to the media. Maybe her new songs will become her iconic songs. Let’s stay tuned to Agatha Kong’s work!
與朋友相處的活動形式有很多，Aga說有時朋友會約她在一間充滿情調的酒吧，靜靜渡過一個很chill的時刻：「酒吧播放的輕鬆音樂如Jazz、悠閒的Bossa Nova都好輕易製造一個寫意氣氛，再呷一杯經典cocktail就是很好的配合。」一般女士都偏向甜味cocktail，但卻不是這位音樂人鍾愛的口味：「我喜歡飲充滿香氣、帶點Strong和複雜的味道，讓我覺得它很有獨特個性，與一般甜美cocktail不同。而我一直都只喜歡飲Old Fashioned，它苦與甘的層次分明很有魅力。」
