Kailin Yong is a violinist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and tireless advocate for using music to promote cultural, spiritual and environmental peace. Known to many as the “fiddler for peace”, he received the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin in 2004 for his efforts in building cultural bridges through music. Yong trained at the Vienna Academy of Music in Austria and spent 20 years in the United States and Europe before returning to Singapore in 2013.

The PLUS Trio is a re-creation of Yong''s US-based Peace Project Trio and combines his love for chamber music and world music. PLUS stands for Peace, Love, Understanding and exemplifies the spirit of Yong’s globally-minded original compositions. This trio consists of violin, cello and world percussion joining in a dynamic sonic dance, all in the name of celebrating diversity, peace and love.
