Showcase ∣ Forum ∣ Workshop
2015.12.4-6 in Taipei Expo Park

THIS World Music Festival starts from Taipei City, temples in Miaoli and Hsinchu, seaside in Hualien, mountains in Taitung and the forest in Pingtung... This journey is also a way to find your nature. Not overstating whatever is new and not being confined in what is old, using the significant eight symbols of transportation, we explore the sceneries of Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania. We will spark extraordinary and endless imagination of time, space, and sound. On this imaginary journey, you could see...

Amis and Malagasy have the cultural connection

Like the moment that gondola's ascending and descending cars meet simultaneously one another, the sitar player and pipa player start a performance together.

Puyuma female singer on her travel by scooter meets Cambodian hysterical rock band.

On the truck, there will be competition between Formosa band and Secondhand Rose.

On the bus, someone was humming Hakka folks and Shima-Uta.

The railway plies between the cold, remote Hokkaido and the tropical area- Dulan.

In the crowded subway station, people were dancing with the rhyme of Flamenco guitar.

In the end, Chinese people, Austronesian peoples and Yi people... no matter who they are, just like babies in the cradle; all people belong to one family in Mother Earth.

"THIS" could be here and there or it could be this side, this water, or this land and this city... As the Wubai's song < Back to Hometown> says: "I'm standing here. My blood and my tears is all buried under my feet. Here is my soul and nobody can waver me." While the roots are growing deeper, the branches are growing higher.

But, where is "here"? Where can I go and come back here? Acknowledge terrane voyage the sky on the other side. The road from "HERE" to the world can be straight or winding. It maybe only like the span of few notes of music and it could just like one moment or like going to a wonderful journey, traveling to the remote sky. Therefore, I could come back here.

The imagination of "from here to there", not just a span. It should include the nation, bloodline, tradition, and the contemporary, blending into multicultural globalism. It all depends on how broad your heart is and how far your horizon is.

However, you should start from here no matter how broad and far the world, use music and singing as transportation to make a travel of soul, make your ears wide open going to THIS World Music Festival - our music festival, viewing the world from the land we are standing, embracing the localism and connecting the earth, sailing out overseas for the music of the world.
