3組臺灣樂團前進加拿大CMW音樂節 展現臺式新搖滾

中華民國文化部影視及流行音樂產業局於本年度首次以官方名義,委請典選音樂帶領臺灣3組樂團前進加拿大多倫多,參加加拿大音樂週(CMW)國際音樂展演活動。臺灣金曲獎「最佳樂團獎」得主MATZKA、兩度入圍的io樂團及東方迷幻電音紅樂團等3支不同風格的樂團,將以特別準備的演出內容展現豐富多元的音樂創意,誓言在今年CMW音樂節中帶給樂迷全新音樂曲風,High翻加拿大。除此之外,本次參展負責人之一的劉兆洪也將參與音樂論壇,分享臺灣樂團如何在世界各地發聲及未來發展的思考。

眾所皆知的加拿大音樂週(CMW)是國際音樂交流的最佳活動舞台之一,臺灣方面過去幾年間陸續有樂團參與演出,加上政府的高度重視,今年首次由臺灣文化部影視及流行音樂產業局扮演起主辦推動的角色。

此次臺灣的3支優秀樂團各具風格。海外巡演經驗豐富的MATZKA,足跡踩遍海內外大小音樂祭,來自臺灣東部(臺東)原住民的他們,天生就有副好歌喉,加上對於音樂的創意,融合雷鬼、搖滾、藍調、爵士、原住民風味與RAPů等,澎湃渾厚的嗓音與豐富多元的音樂元素,創造出獨特的「台式雷鬼」,讓他們成為全球許多重要音樂節活動中經常受邀的熱門樂團。

成軍於加拿大溫哥華的io樂團,成員組成十分國際化,懷著搖滾夢想家的四個人不想一輩子坐在辦公桌前,於是放棄了土木工程師、精算師等高薪工作,給人生一個做音樂的機會,並用音樂來證明他們的熱情,留下他們搖滾的痕跡。事實也證明io樂團的音樂實力的確不容忽視,雖然他們才發行過兩張專輯,卻已入圍了2次臺灣金曲獎。這支百發百中的樂團,這一回回到自己成長的加拿大,要用音樂來唱出搖滾的新熱情。

由臺灣頂尖電子樂製作人DJ Code所帶領的紅樂團,以中式古典樂器為主軸,混搭前衛電子編曲,結合主唱超迷幻嗓音,創造奇幻的東方電子音樂意境。紅樂團常受邀至全球各地演出,編曲融合西式古典樂與電子音樂,他們此次以數位電子鍵盤彈奏出各式中式傳統打擊樂器的樂聲,帶給樂迷嶄新的現場演出方式,震撼視覺及聽覺。

為了與全球音樂產業及工作者有更多交流,具豐富國際經驗的音樂人士劉兆洪將參與今年CMW音樂論壇會議,期待與全球重要音樂的專業領導者齊聚一堂,探討國際音樂發展最新趨勢,並分享臺灣流行音樂產業的近況,期望促成未來更多跨國合作機會。

此回臺灣參與加拿大CMW音樂節的樂團、音樂工作者都十分開心,為了希望在此音樂盛宴中盡情展現音樂創作的實力,近期莫不積極開會討論,準備更多精彩音樂節目及表演形式,保證讓大家見識到臺灣音樂的無限爆發力,也期待有更多與其他國家樂團交流及合作的機會。
