Bio

Taiwu Children's Ancient Ballads Troupe

Taiwu Children's Ancient Ballads Troupe is from the indigenous Paiwan tribe in the Taiwu village of southern Taiwan. Many of the Paiwan ballads have been passed down from generation to generation orally as the tribe doesn't have written words. The Paiwan tribe's ancient tales, rituals, social structure, and cultural lifestyle have all been illustrated in the songs. When this group performed on the Japanese NHK network television program "Amazing Voice", the Taiwu Children's Ancient Ballads Troupe was voted as one of the world's top five performance groups by the audience. "Picture their land as I smell the fragrance of the earth and refresh by the breeze blowing through the valley through these children's voices," acclaimed the music critic in Europe as Taiwu Children's Ancient Ballads Troupe toured in Luxembourg, Belgium , France and Germany in 2009.

Daniel Ho

Daniel Ho's simple philosophy of presenting music with sincerity and artistry encompasses six consecutive GRAMMY Awards, number-one albums on national airplay charts, and top-ten albums on Billboard. In 2010, his solo 'ukulele CD, Polani (Pure), was the first 'ukulele album in music history to receive a GRAMMY nomination. On piano the following year, he received a nomination for Best Pop Instrumental Album for his CD, E Kahe Malie (Flowing Gently). Most recently, in 2012, Daniel's album On A Gentle Island Breeze was nominated for a GRAMMY in the World Music category.

A Honolulu native, Daniel started music lessons at an early age and spent his teenage years orchestrating big band arrangements. At the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles, he excelled in composition and film scoring. He was the leader and keyboardist of the acclaimed '90s contemporary jazz band, Kilauea.
