Pak Keong Sequeira

Fortes Pakeong Sequeira is a musician, graphic designer, illustrator and founder of Sparrow Music Culture Ltd. He is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English and also understands Portuguese.

Fortes is his adopted Portuguese name, given to him by one of his teachers: “He asked me what my Chinese name [Pakeong] means, and I told him it had to do with strength.” (Hence, “Fortes”, which is Portuguese for ”strength”.)

His last name, too, has an interesting background: “My mother’s godfather was Father Luís Sequeira, and she decided to pass his surname on to me.”
