The Taiwan Ministry of Culture Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development (BAMID) is excited to showcase three Taiwanese bands at this year's Canadian Music Week (CMW) in partnership with CLICK MUSIC. As the first foray into Canada, performers include the Taiwan Golden Melody "Best Band" Award winner MATZKA, twice-nominated io, and Taiwan Golden Indie Music Award nominated RED. A perfect showcase of local Taiwanese culture with the crossover appeal of overseas pop, these bands are ready to take Toronto storm with two nights of music on Wednesday May 7th and an official Taiwan showcase on May 8th from 7-10 pm on the second floor of the El Mocambo. The showcase will also include collaborations with the bandleader from Montreal-based band The Ins and Outs. Full show details below. For more information on the 'Hearing Taiwan' showcase at Canadian Music Week, click here: http://tinyurl.com/k44dsxn.

In addition to the official showcase, Taiwan representatives and artists will be available to connect with the media. A press event will be held at the Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre at the International Market Place on May 8th from 1-2 pm, which will include a stripped-down acoustic set from MATZKA. Media will have the chance to speak with key leaders in the export mission and showcasing artists. To attend please RSVP to jonathan@audioblood.com.

In addition, the Taiwan delegation will be available for B2B meetings as part of Canadian Music Week's international conference activity. For more information on how to get involved, please email tradeshows@cimamusic.ca.

Canadian Music Week (CMW) is one of the most influential international music conferences and festivals in the world. Reflecting the Taiwanese Government support for the performing arts, the Ministry of Culture has fully supported this project and selected these three outstanding Taiwanese music acts to participate. To bridge gaps between the musicians and the global music industry attending CMW, Taiwan will be sending music business veteran Jesse Liu to CMW to discuss the latest trends in the development of international music. In addition, he will share insights regarding the status of Taiwan pop music industry and encourage more cross-border collaborations to promote opportunities for the future. This is surely the start of a great partnership between the booming music industries in Taiwan and Canada, and beyond. To learn more about BAMID: http://www.bamid.gov.tw.
