The concert, Taiwanese Waves, is a chance for Taiwan to really show its talent, so come on out for a good time and tunes! Among the artists performing:
安溥 Anpu (張懸 Deserts Xuan): One of the most prolific and popular Taiwanese indie artists ever, Deserts Xuan brings a refreshing and soothing sound that’s earned accolades all over Asia.
旺福軍方專頁 Won Fu : A “folk-rock” band that can wield a diverse set of genres, Won Fu combines different styles for an eclectic sound.
