Jhubei Drum Festival: A-Lin (阿玲)

One of the headliners for the drum concert in Jhubei was A-Lin, or 阿玲, a female Taiwanese singer of aboriginal decent who is gaining popularity. I was able to get quite close even though I was sandwiched in by adoring fans. Most of these are ranging from ISO 1600 to 3200 due to the dramatic darker lighting styles used.

Before I post the photos, here is a music video of hers. I’m not especially into Taiwanese pop (though I do have a soft spot for Crowd Liu) though it works wonders when learning the language.

  1. Nice photos Josh. A-lin is Amis Tribe. She used to work in my wife’s pub in Tainan when she was a student. Didn’t know she was so talented then.
