Taste of Taiwan

Taste of Taiwan 《品味台灣》- Lan Tung (2017)
featuring Lan Tung (voice)
Taste of Taiwan celebrates the amazing variety of Taiwanese food, listing great dishes, snacks, and drinks from breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, to the late hours at the night markets. Through a dazzling food tour, it brings the audience to a land of vibrant culture. The music draws materials from Taiwanese opera and folk songs; however, the use of polyrhythms and cross-cultural instrumentation reflects the composer’s multi-cultural living and working environment in Canada. This piece was commissioned by the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra with the support of a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
