2016 World Music Festival @ Taiwan:
Best-value Outdoor Music Event of 2016
Taiwan is an amazing island with a rich diversity of musical culture, such as that of the indigenous, Hoklo, and Hakka peoples. The brilliant and varied features of each group along with their strong sense of creativity fill the music of Taiwan with unique elements.
In an effort to allow these local elements to meet the rest of the world and vice-versa, the Bureau of Audiovisual and Musical Development of Taiwan’s Ministry of Culture sponsored the Taiwan International Exhibition and Exchange for Unique Music in 2015. This year, the event was expanded into a three-day musical festival to be held October 21-23 at the Taipei City Dajia Riverside Park in the area located between Watergates 8 and 9.
The title of this year’s event is the 2016 World Music Festival @ Taiwan, consisting of ten performance groups from Taiwan and abroad, an international showcase event, four lectures on world music by music festival curators, four music workshops, and a bazaar that will run the duration of the event. With such a lineup, the event may be looked upon as the most relaxing and most family-oriented outdoor music festival in Taiwan this year with the highest CP ratio!
Teresa Salgueiro, a Portuguese singer internationally known for her world music talent, has been invited to share, among other work, songs from well-renowned director Wim Wenders’ classic film Lisbon Story.
