“Just think about how you can go back home.”
Let's go! Let's search for the tree of life in our memories.
Following the voice of brave Sangpuy, you'll enter the mountains in a split second.
The breathtaking sounds, from the Nature’s soul make you feel the awe brought forth when you experience it in person.
This is a voice deriving from a distant tribe as well as a story about answering to the calls of the ancestors' spirits and about homecoming.

Sangpuy Katatepan Mavaliyw, who is often described as a young man with an old soul, is a youth from the ancient Pinuyumayan community in Taitung, where the mountains meet the ocean. After winning the Golden Melody Awards, he has staunchly shouldered the responsibility of passing on the traditional cultures. “When you are away from home, you only think about how you can go back home.”
In this concert, he introduces the soul of traditional tunes into modern melodies. Through the three main themes – “roots,” “trunks” and “leaves” -- he will perform with stars from the aboriginal communities to praise the roots of life, the unwavering love of mothers like trunks, and the joyful celebration of giving birth to offspring like branches and leaves that constantly grow. With music inherited from the elders in the aboriginal communities and the Mother Nature they respect and admire as the subject, the concert brings the audience to the mountains and forests in the celestial voice blessed by the ancestors' spirits along with the aboriginal cultures and memories about the native land.
