Singers Chyi Yu and Michelle Pan will hold a joint concert at the Taipei Arena tomorrow in memory of their good friend, the late Taiwanese author Chen Ping, better known by her pseudonym Sanmao. By reinterpreting their songs from albums such as “Echo,” with lyrics written by the legendary writer, they hope to have her classics such as “Dreamland,” “Olive Tree” and “Don’t Say Goodbye” performed once again.

Sanmao published dozens of books before committing suicide in 1991, including her 1976 best-seller “Stories of the Sahara,” which portrays her experiences living in the Sahara with her Spanish husband Jose Maria Quero. The Ministry of Culture has uploaded the English translation of some of her works on its platform “Books from Taiwan” at

Sanmao and Jose lived in Spain’s Canary Islands in the 1970s. The local tourism authorities announced this year that they have mapped out a tour route in memory of the writer, hoping to attract millions of fans to travel there.
