Ever since Pangu created the universe, a natural music has resounded constantly through it, permeating our cells. It is the expression of the self, and the language of peoples. Those who love it explore its original implications with a reverential attitude, identifying interconnected spiritual resonances in distinctive regional forms. A music craze that has spanned the world for half a century fulfilled a dream for Taiwan in 2016. In the fall of 2017, in Taipei’s Dajia Riverside Park, the joy is overflowing once again.
