The Village Cafe (村落餐廳), a bar and cafe located at the Taipei Artist Village (台北國際藝術村) on Beiping East Road, is now holding live music concerts every Saturday night.
Tomorrow the venue hosts Sugar Lady, a Taipei-based rockabilly band, and indie rock group Bowz Tiger (包子虎樂團), which is currently promoting its new release Highway Children.
Although many of the performers booked for this month are guitar-slinging rock groups, expect to find some variety in the Village Cafe’s weekly program. Next week Belgian expat composer and pianist Pierre Hujoel (aka Hue Yue, 胡月) performs avant-garde pop sung in Mandarin.

This year’s Kuandu Arts Festival (關渡藝術節), which opened on Sept. 23 and runs through Nov. 29, is focused on music. Under the theme “Joy of Music,” a nod to the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, the program features performances by seven symphony orchestras as well as several Taipei National University of the Arts (TNUA, 國立臺北藝術大學) student and faculty shows, in addition to the annual film and animation festivals.

The prognosis for biodiversity on Earth is grim. According to a sobering report released by the UN last year, 1 million land and marine species across the globe are threatened with extinction — more than at any other period in human history.

A disconsolate mother dressed in white wanders through Mexico City’s floating gardens looking for her children killed by COVID-19, in a pandemic-era adaptation of a legend rooted in Aztec mythology. The traditional play La Llorona (The Weeping Woman) returns to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Xochimilco ahead of the Day of the Dead with a poignant tribute to the victims of COVID-19. The ghost with flowing black hair, who according to legend reappears every year searching for her downed children, has spread throughout Latin America. “It’s dedicated to the memory of all the people who left without saying goodbye to their loved
