Flushing Town Hall, in collaboration with Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York, present Enchanted Formosa on Friday, September 8. The show explores the exciting history of Taiwan in a multi-genre musical performance.
On Thursday, Flushing Town Hall held a news conference to announce its new fall season, and attendees were treated to a preview of this Friday’s performance.
Enchanted Formosa captures over one hundred years of Taiwan’s history, from the Qing imperial era, to the Japanese colonial decades, to present day Taiwan. Combining traits of folk, pop, and alt-rock music, Yu-Wei Hsieh and the band will share the provocative and traditional ideas of the time. In keeping with Flushing Town Hall’s global music tradition, New York-based guest singers Shan Y Chaung, Macy Chen, Han Hsiao, and Taipei-based artists Ma Nan and Tan Teng Teng will also perform songs and melodies in different genres.
With music that highlights the indigenous tribes, the Hoklo groups, and the Hakka villages, guests will be sure to love the diverse array of music throughout the night.
The event starts at 7:30 PM and is free, with a suggested donation of $10. Online RSVP is required. Visit http://www.flushingtownhall.org to RSVP and for more information.
