The third week of August focuses on Chinese and Taiwanese music. I went through a streak where I actually bought several albums from artists I did not know, so my collection is actually bigger than I originally thought. Of course, I do have mixed tapes of Chinese music gifted to me by the awesome nichan and she’s even given me a few of her own much loved mandopop collections. I think the way I ended up liking more of this branch of Asian music does have to do with watching Taiwanese dramas in particularly.
A few of my favorite artists and songs:
Bii – oh, his voice and that emotion he can convey. Swoons.
Fahrenheit – ok, me liking them really does have to do with the dramas they’ve acted in and thus the soundtracks they’ve contributed to.
JJ Lin – he really does have such a beautiful voice, you know?
Mayday – the first ever Taiwanese band I really fell hard for. I like tons of Korean and Japanese bands (note by band I mean people who play their own instruments and not boy or girl groups who sing and dance)
I also like Jia Jia, Angela Zhang, S.H.E, Yoga Lin, Della Ding, William Wei/Weibird, Ian Chen, Alan Kuo, Fun 4, Anthony Neely, Andrew Tan, Peter Ho, Jarvis Wu, F.I.R., and the list can go on and on, lol.
