Taiwanese Waves returns to SummerStage NYC this summer. Discover three divergent artists from our homeland - waa wei, The Dinosaur's Skin, and DJ Mr. Skin - each showcasing distinct takes on music.
waa wei 魏如萱
A singer-songwriter, radio DJ, author, and actress, Waa Wei is one of the biggest and most beloved female vocalists in Taiwan’s music scene. She sparks a new sound infused with sweet freshness, turning youthful musings into blissful ditties with her soothing vocals. Since going solo, she has released numerous solo albums and won GMA's Best Female Vocalist.
The Dinosaur's Skin 恐龍的皮
The Dinosaur's Skin was formed by members "Trex" and “Triceratops”. They are two dinosaurs who traveled through a wormhole to the streets of Taipei, making music to mourn their lost friends and hoping to find the remaining dinosaurs. Their musical style encompasses elements of indie rock, dream pop, synth pop, and lo-fi.
DJ Mr. Skin 國語作業簿
As the Red Bull Taiwan 3Style Champion, DJ Mr. Skin is a longtime leader in Taiwan’s Mandopop scene. He is known for his brand "Mandarin Homework" and will be bringing the Mandopop party to New York this summer.
