[April 24- May 28] Music, Island, Stories: Taiwan Calling!

January 29, 2024

MUSIC, ISLAND, STORIES: TAIWAN CALLING!

Our Song, Our Era

For over a hundred years, Taiwan has been telling stories through songs that sweep across the Chinese-speaking world and touch the hearts of billions. Whether in authoritarian times or the open-minded values of today, musicians and their songs have transcended generations and space, breaking through geo-political borders and leaving vivid memories in everyone’s life. Everyone surely has a song of their own, whether narrating everyday life or expressing collective sentiments, and here at MUSIC, ISLAND, STORIES: TAIWAN CALLING, you will definitely find your own story.

Let’s open our ears and eyes to experience a rich musical journey together.
