Taiwanese musicians will present a "Sound of Taiwan" concert at the World Music Expo (WOMEX) for the first time on Oct. 26 in the southern Spanish city of Seville, concert organizer Serina Chen (陳琪) said yesterday. The concert, organized by the Taipei Arts International Association with the assistance of Chunghwa Telecom, will focus on unique styles of Taiwanese music, such as the "Sound of Flying Clouds" -- performed by aboriginal musicians -- and "A Moving Sound," which Chen described as a new musical form that is a blend of Taiwanese, Chinese and Asian music. WOMEX, which runs from Oct. 25-29, is the world's No.1 forum dedicated exclusively to world, folk, ethnic, traditional, local and diaspora music of all kinds.
