TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The 2021 Taipei Jazz Festival will feature Taiwanese award-winning musicians and will be held on three consecutive weekends beginning Nov. 27.
The jazz festival will showcase a total of 22 musical artists over a total of five days. The lineup features rapper Soft Lipa, who won best male Mandarin singer at the Golden Melody Awards (GMA) this year, and young Taiwanese R&B talent Whyte (also known as ?te), who was named the best new artist at the GMAs and famous for her catchy lo-fi music.
Curated by the founder of Downtown Music, Wang Si-yu (王斯禹), the series of concerts are expected to bring chill vibes to the audience. Three playlists made by Streetvoice editors will also help the crowds relax, according to Taipei City's Department of Cultural Affairs.
