TAIWAN Tsng-kha-lâng


Formed in 2017, Tsng-kha-lâng is a young talneted group consisting of members studying in sinophone literature. With their debut album “Iā-Kuan Sûn-Tiûnn”, they focus on local religion, local history and the 228 Incident. In the music, they combine traditional Beiguan, folk and rock’n’roll compositions through field research, sining in the beauty of Taiwanese with psychedelic flavor. This album will also be followed by a novel written by the lead vocal Tiunn Ka-siông . These works – as well as the band’s live performances – prove that Tsng-kha-lâng is one of the most creative and important new rising bands in Taiwan. (From Cheng-Chung Tsai)
