Taiwanese Artists Participate in Canadian Music Week

Taiwanese Artists Participate in Canadian Music Week Brand New Musical Energy Earns Organizers’ Endorsement and Recommendation

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, April 18, 2018 / -- Canadian Music Week is a major international music festival which is one of the largest in North America and is set to open in Toronto on May 7. The Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture has carefully organized a team of Taiwanese artists to participate in this grand and important event. Today (April 18), the “2018 Canadian Music Week Visit” press conference, was held at the Taipei Mayor’s Official Residence for the participating artists. Three performing groups will represent Taiwan this year, including: Abao, Jade Eyes, and Dizparity. They will leave for Toronto, Canada on May 8, and are expected to generate hot topics on Taiwanese music in the biggest Chinese market in North America.

Canadian Music Week was first held in 1981. Originally established as a music week, it has already developed into the most influential music and media event in Canada. CMW incorporates conferences, award ceremonies, and film exhibitions, and organizes musical performances in venues throughout the city to provide a rich musical exhibition and commercial exchange platform. Every year, besides gathering a large number of music and film producers, as well as industrial representatives including internet, publishing, and record companies, to conduct exchange and commercial discussion, the event is also attended by tens of thousands of fans. This one-week event is the longest and largest music festival in North America, and its scale is even comparable to other major international music festivals. Canadian Music Week has long since developed from a simple music week to “Canada’s largest new music festival”.

In view of the Chinese being Canada’s largest foreign ethnic group since long ago, Chinese popular music plays an influential role in the local area. Furthermore, Toronto is also the largest developing concert market outside of New York and Los Angeles, which is why participating in this exhibition is of critical significance. The three groups of artists sent by the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture to perform are: “Abao”, “Jade Eyes”, and “Dizparity”. With a creative style that blends aboriginal elements into a variety of musical styles including rock, reggae, and R&B, Abao shows off the beautiful voice of the Paiwan tribe together with an alluring aboriginal musical rhythm. Bearing the title of “Eastern Colors” is the all-girl electronic trance group, Jade Eyes, which is known for music characterized by a strong techno rhythm accompanying ethereal feminine singing voices. During the 2017 SXSW music festival, the group also received the honor of being recommended by the organizers to give an additional official performance. Finally, the winner of “Best Electronic Album” and “Best Electronic Single” at the 8th “Golden Indie Music Awards”, Dizparity, who is only in his twenties, portrays a new trend for stylish parties through his dedication to his own unique sound.

These three groups of Taiwanese artists, with their vastly different musical styles, will hold two performances in Taiwan, including the “Taiwan Beats” showcase. Aside from enriching the Canadian music festival with new styles of Chinese music, the official joint media campaign with CMW, and the promotion of collaborations with distinguished artists, will help raise the stature of artists on both sides, increase their presence in both markets, and maximize local media attention.
