As part of the acclaimed Manhattan open-air festival SummerStage, independent singer-songwriter Anpu (安溥), folk rock band Wonfu (旺福), and synth-pop ensemble Sunset Rollercoaster (落日飛車) will join New York concertgoers in a one-night showdown at Central Park on July 16.
Anpu previously went by the stage name Deserts Chang (張懸) to avoid riding upon the success of her politician father, Chiao Jen-ho (焦仁和), former secretary-general of the Straits Exchange Foundation (海基會). She released her fourth studio album under her birth name in 2012 to signify a change in musical direction.
Wonfu is one of the most successful indie bands hailing out of Taiwan's underground scene. Combining folk culture with Taiwanese humor, the four-person collective rocks out to Motown, ‘60s rock, improvised comedy, and indie pop. Their bright ‘80s-style outwear - neon tights, colorful prints, block-colored shorts - are a throwback to their playful roots.
Sunset Rollercoaster is a five-man ensemble that serenades to the fantasy of love and intoxicating experiences. Its use of absurdist lyrics and musical elements from soul, garage, and psychedelic rock has made the young band an icon of urban Taipei pop.
