Funky World

When a little birdie told me about the Renlai World Music concert at TienEducationCenter on August 19, I felt that as a citizen of the world, I should be experiencing all kinds of music.

And it was free and I had a hot date.

In my mind, world music is a conglomerate of pony-tailed musicians wearing baggy-clothes sitting around on pillows cross-legged playing sitars and didgeridoos.

Usi AJ: From the Ganges to the Pacific Coast of Taiwan

Usi AJ has apparently been called "The biggest protogenesis fusion artist" (We're not so sure what that means either). He says that he got familiar with traditional Indian sitar music and World Fusion Music when he accidentally bought the wrong CD, and so it was by this random chance that he immersed himself into the research and development of Asian music. He hopes to continue the legacy of Taiwan's Kebalan tribe's culture and music. In order that people can get in touch with his music, Usi AJ assembled many Taiwanese musicians to form "Siyu Sitar", and through continued creative projects and performances, he hopes that everyone can come to a deeper understanding of the charm of Asian culture.

Yo and Waka

In a collaboration with Satyana’s Butoh Dance Troupe, bringing the essence of India to Taiwan, Yo and Waka perform bi-weekly, on a wednesday night in Beitou, Taipei. Having both spent time in India learning the instruments, they have an expert finesse to send you floating into a mystical dream world.
