Chris Bailey is an electric guitarist living in Taiwan. He honed his skills on his instrument playing in late night blues clubs throughout Australia during the 90’s. At the age of twenty-two, as a birthday present, he joined touring Aussie blues band ‘Buzz & The Blues Band’. After touring extensively with this band for four years, he left to pursue his interests in Eastern culture and languages. While regarded as being primarily a blues guitarist, his eclectic tastes in music shine through when he plugs in, and steps on stage. He brings a unique sound, energy and feeling to all of his musical expeditions. Not to be missed!
MoShang is a sound jeweler living in Taiwan. He collects rough audio diamonds from the streets of Taiwan (be they overheard conversations, street-ads blared from the ubiquitous blue-trucks, street processions or funeral chants) and fuses them with traditional Chinese instruments and laid-back beats to create a unique blend of downtempo electronica he likes to call Chinese Chill.
Now that you’ve read the bio’s, here’s a free recording of the set that started it all:
