We are excited to be once again collaborating with AsianInNy.com and Tai-ke New York to present the 4th "Hello Taiwan" Concert and Night Market! This year's concert will feature these four bands:

-Feiwu (廢物樂隊) is the hard-rocking band who wrote and performed the classic “我愛台灣啤酒” (“I Love Taiwan Beer”) and other original songs at Spring Scream and various venues around the island from 1997 to 2001. Feiwu is well known as one of the core bands that pioneered the Taiwan independent music scene of the ’90’s along with Mayday (五月天), Cthonic (閃靈), 1976, The Chairman (董事長), and Quarterback (四分衛).

-Yuhan Su (蘇郁涵) is a jazz vibraphonist, marimbist, composer and arranger. Vibraphonist Yuhan Su won Best New Artist Award at the Golden Indie Music Award in Taiwan and her ‘Flying Alone‘ Album won for the Best Jazz Album of the Year!

-Torpid May produces progressive ambient collages that are delicate and coarse, somber and affecting, dreamy and stern. Packed with suspense and twists, they create a brand of melodic rock that unravels tired assumptions for unexpected sonic musings. The band is coming off an active year appearing at the 2013 MEANY Festival, Keep Taiwan Free concert at Time Square, and Passport to Taiwan at Union Square Park.

-The Underground Channel is a group of guys who love to share their music and make music together.

All proceeds will be donated to a charity for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts.

Organizers: AsianInNY.com, TAANY/Passport to Taiwan,  and Tai-Ke New York.

Participating groups: North America Taiwanese Women’s Association of New York, Taiwanese American Association of Greater New York, Taiwanese American Council of Greater New York, Taiwanese American Professionals of New York, Formosan Association for Public Affairs Young Professionals Group, Federation of Taiwanese Student Associations in New York, NYC Taiwanese & Taiwanese Friends Network, Association of Taiwanese Alumni in Greater New York and Taiwan Center.
