ARA Kimbo, “Father of Folk Songs in Taiwan”
A Praise to the Land With Voices from the Tribes
CHIANG Hsun once commented, “His songs are the most beautiful sound in Taiwan. His deep and rich voice reminds me of the towering mountains in eastern Taiwan and reminds me of the surging and vast ocean.” ARA Kimbo, father of the folk songs in Taiwan, has always told moving stories with his songs and evoked our common affections toward the land and the genuine unadorned subtlety that has been forgotten with his deep and rich voice. The concert is titled SENAY, meaning “let’s sing aloud together” in Paiwan language. Therefore, ARA Kimbo invites his good friends from the tribes, including WU Hao-en, INKA MBing, NGERENGER Kazangiljan and SEREDAU, to sing out loud together. With the power of songs, they are going to sing the most moving and genuine sound from the vastness of land.
ARA Kimbo has garnered the Best Male Singer and the Best Folk Song Singer Awards from the Sixth Chinese Music Media Awards, the Best Lyricist and the Best Song of the Year Awards from the 17th Golden Melody Awards, and others. His voice is acclaimed by LIN Hwai-min as “the most moving calling from Taiwan.” A descendent of Pinuyumayan and Payuan tribes, he is well-known for his enthusiasm for life and for his devoutness for nature. With his wealthy experience in creating and performing music, ARA Kimbo will lead to audience to appreciate the most beautiful sound rising from the soils of Taiwan.
