Open Recording Session: New Songs from Indigenous Taiwan
Tsou, an indigenous language of Taiwan, has less than 2,000 living speakers but is well-known for its ceremonial choral songs. Baitz (Paicu) Niahosa is one of the few Tsou singers writing new music in the language. Applying her classical training to ancient vocal traditions, she creates a totally new kind of Tsou music in the Bel Canto style. On Sunday March 20 at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC, Baitz will be performing and recording Tsou songs in front of a small audience.
The Endangered Language Alliance promotes poetry, song and story-telling in endangered languages from around the world.
