Grammy nominee Carolyn Malachi to perform in Taiwan

Taipei, March 2 (CNA) Carolyn Malachi, a Grammy nominated American singer, will give a series of performances in Taiwan as part of the American Music Abroad program, according to one of the organizers. Malachi, whose genre is a unique blend of hip pop, jazz and spoken word, will perform March 14 at the Multi-Purpose Auditorium in New Taipei, said the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), which is co-organizing the event. She will also give performances in Taipei and Kaohsiung, the AIT said. Her tour in Taiwan is part of the American Music Abroad (AMA) initiative, a program that aims to promote cultural exchanges between the United States and other countries through activities such as public concerts, interaction with local musicians and workshops. Described by MTV as "one of five R&B artists to obsess over," Malachi was nominated for a Grammy in 2011 for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for her single "Orion." In 2013, she released a full-length album titled GOLD, which includes tracks such as "All Right" and "Fall Winter Spring Summer." The AMA is administered by the Association of American Voices on behalf of the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. (By Elaine Hou)
