About the Artists:
Singer/songwriter A-Lin’s prolific pop music career includes numerous awards and three nominations for Best Mandarin Female Singer at the Golden Melody Awards; six albums and two EPs released over the course of eight years; and performances in Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Incredibly popular in the Mandarin-speaking world, A-Lin is known as the “Born Diva.”
天生的歌手兼詞曲作者A-Lin有著經歷豐富的流行音樂生涯，包括曾獲得無數音樂獎項和入圍「金曲獎」最佳國語女歌手三項提名;在八年時間內先後發行了六張專輯兩張EP; 演出遍布澳大利亞，加拿大，中國大陸，香港和台灣。在華語流行音樂界人氣極旺， 享有“天生歌姬”的稱號。
Formerly the lead vocalist of Golden Melody award-winning 90’s alternative rock band Luantan, Luantan Ascent has since added the positions of composer, lyricist, producer, arranger, recorder, mixer and film score composer to an already-impressive resume. Since becoming a solo artist in 2002, Ascent has released nine albums of his own while also composing scores for TV and film.
Taiwanese rapper, songwriter, and TV personality Dwagie, best known for his use of Taiwanese dialects in his performances, is the only rapper from Taiwan to be featured in TIME Magazine, CNN, Reuters, The Times, L’Agence France-Presse (AFP), Suddeutsche Zeitung, and the Discovery Channel. His ground-breaking album releases demonstrate his desire to unite two worlds: his first solo album, Lotus from the Tongue, is considered the first full-length rap album in Chinese; his award-winning second album, People, featured the Dalai Lama; and his third album, Refuse to Listen, featured a collaboration with Nas, uniting East and West.
台灣饒舌歌手大支，以其在表演中使用閩南語最為出名，也是台灣唯一登上美國《時代雜誌》、CNN、英國路透社、《泰晤士報》、法國法新社、德國《南德意志報》和探索頻道節目《Made in Taiwan》人物專訪的饒舌歌手。突破性的專輯發佈也表現出他的音樂理想：第一張個人專輯《舌燦蓮花》被認為具完整東方饒舌精神的專輯;第三張專輯《不聽》，與美國饒舌歌手Nas合作，結合了東西方的音樂元素。
