Several J-pop artists are celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival with fans in Taiwan this weekend. Pop singer Aimer will kick off her Asian tour at the Taipei International Convention Center tomorrow, followed by girl group Morning Musume’s fan meeting at National Taipei University’s Taipei campus on Sunday.

Veteran singer Aska will also stage a concert on Sunday, at the National Taiwan University Sports Center. The singer is a member of Chage and Aska, a hit Japanese music duo formed in 1979. The male duo’s classics “Say Yes” and “Yah Yah Yah” were among the top 10 best-selling singles of the Japanese Heisei era (1989 — 2019 ).

The two members officially announced the band’s “indefinite suspension” in 2009 to concentrate on their solo careers, but then revived their activities temporarily in 2013. Aska hopes to bring back fans’ sweet old memories at his solo concert, and does not rule out the possibility of signing with Chage when the time is ripe.
