Paul Wong 黄贯中 & Ka-Keung 黄家强 of Beyond
Formed in 1983, legendary rock band Beyond is the most successful and influential group to ever come out of Hong Kong, with both Chinese and non-Chinese fans across Asia. Though Beyond disbanded in 2005, its members continued to be consummate entertainers, playing the roles of composers, songwriters, musicians and actors – performing as solo artistes or forming their own bands. At Tiger Asian Music Festival 2012, two of these music industry greats – Wong Ka-Keung and Paul Wong – will be dazzling the audience with their showmanship and prodigious musical talent. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to catch them live once again!
成立于1983年的Beyond 摇滚乐队是香港乐坛最成功也最具影响力的组合，歌迷横跨亚洲。虽然Beyond于2005年解散，但是它的成员仍然活跃于娱乐事业，并扮演多重角色：词曲作者，音乐人和演员，成立他们自己的乐队或个人演唱。在Tiger 亚洲音乐节2012，黄家强和黄贯中两位乐坛奇才将再次展示他们超卓的音乐才华和实力。机会难得，千万别错过！
Chang Chen-Yue 张震岳
Rock singer Chang Chen-Yue first became popular thanks to his 1998 hit song ‘Ai Wo Bie Zou’. But he’s not just a singer: this multi-talented Taiwanese entertainer is also a songwriter, guitarist, dance DJ and actor. The Tiger Asian Music Festival will reunite him with rapper MC Hotdog, with whom he has previously collaborated on two hip-hop singles.
台湾摇滚歌手张震岳因他1998年的热门歌曲《爱我别走》而走红。他不只是一位歌手，也是词曲作者，吉他手，DJ 和演员。他会在Tiger 亚洲音乐节与饶舌歌手MC Hotdog再次携手演出。两人曾经合作演唱hip-hop单曲。
A-Lin has achieved rapid commercial success across the Mandarin-speaking world since her debut in 2006. Her natural talent has led some to call her the next A-Mei. Like A-Lin, A-Mei is a Taiwanese aborigine of Amis descent, and arguably the most popular singer from Taiwan. A-Lin herself has admitted that A-Mei has greatly influenced her and frequently covers A-Mei’s songs when she performs.
Manhand’s members (MC Bee, Von, Daeren, MC Toy and DJ Point) all have their own distinct characters. This has had a significant influence on their self-produced debut album, ManHanD, giving its music a uniqueness that stands out from other hip-hop/rap albums. Their one-of-a-kind sound and artistry has been recognised at the 2008 PWH Music Awards, where they won Best Group, Best Song and Best Album Design accolades. Since then, they have continued to shine, clinching the Best Chinese Singers of Malaysia Award at the GCMA Music Awards and having a string of hits on both local and international music charts.
一支马来西亚四男一女的组合，由个性与态度独特的成员组成，包括：MC Bee、Von、Daeren、MC Toy与DJ Point。他们亲自制作的专辑《慢行》展现了独特嘻哈饶舌音乐个性。2008年，慢行勇夺《马来西亚娱协奖》“最佳团体”、“最佳原创方言歌曲”及“最佳专辑封套设计”三项大奖。2009年，再次于《全球华语音乐颁奖典礼》摘下“大马杰出歌手奖”，成绩斐然，无论在本地或国际音乐排行榜上皆屡获佳绩。
Jam Hsiao 萧敬腾
Jam joined the One Million Star talent contest in 2007, but the show’s producers, recognising his enormous talent, instead asked him to appear as a fearsome challenger who eliminates contestants in head-to-head sing-offs (PK Challenges). Jam’s showmanship helped the show’s ratings skyrocket, and won him legions of fans, including Taiwan’s Queen of Pop A-Mei who invited him to perform a duet with her on a song in her 2007 album.
This Taiwanese rapper has drawn controversy because of his frequent use of explicit lyrics. But his fans appreciate his music, which they feel presents a gritty, realistic picture of life. He has produced numerous hits, won several awards and sold hundreds of thousands of CDs. His 2006 album Wake Up was both critically acclaimed and a commercial success, appealing to a wide range of audiences.
台湾饶舌歌手因为歌词多是通俗直白的语言而受到争议，不过却得到歌迷的欣赏。他们觉得他的音乐表达出真实生活的一面。他制作了无数热门歌曲，赢夺了好几个奖项，售出了数十万张CD. 2006年广受好评且热卖的《Wake Up》专辑吸引了各个阶层的听众。
The members of rap group LMF all grew up in poverty, and this is reflected in their music: an angry, edgy, vehement tirade about economic oppression and social alienation faced by Hong Kong’s lower class. While their use of expletives has drawn criticism, there is no denying their talent, originality, popularity and most importantly, their role in bringing the pressing issues faced by the poor people of Hong Kong to the forefront of social consciousness.
If you ask me, i’m looking forward towards the performance by ALL the acts as i’m quite familar with their songs and have listening to quite a few albums by these singers mentioned above. I’ve also noticed the ones who emerged later on such as A-Lin, ManHand & Jam Hsiao especially Jam where i actually followed the One Million Star talent contest closely in 2007. That being said, I dare to say that their live performance would be FREAKING AWESOME and you won’t wanna miss it!!
