About the Exhibition
This exhibition brings you back to the 1960s, in which a group of esteemed musicians, including Hsu Tsang-houei and Shih Wei-liang, initiated a movement to collect and preserve folk music across Taiwan, This crucial mission marks a milestone in the island’s music history. The invaluable recordings from half a century ago have an intangible yet profound influence on Taiwan’s music today that has blended traditional and contemporary styles.
