WHEN TRADITION MEETS MODERN

(sidekicks of Matzu)
(the drum play group)

(the modern lion dance by 2 kids)

September 16 was the Worship Day(祈福行腳,巡行踩街) of Matzu Festival(媽祖文化節) in Taipei and I was happened to be there to watching this event. Matzu is an important goddess in Taiwanese culture; people believe that she protects people away from dangerous and brings peaceful life. The activity of the Worship Day is a big parade with a lot of traditional Taiwanese cultural performance groups. I saw a quite interesting drum play group; their performance combined of tradition and modern music and lion dance. Check the videos!

那兩隻獅子是小孩扮的吧???
舞步真是太妙了!!
我在想,要是再讓他們多跳個5分鐘,
兩個人肯定會撞在一起!!!

對了,你們的新LOGO看到了,
五隻大聲公擺在一起感覺很活潑也很妙,
有什麼典故嗎???

James Tung said...

是啊,台客電音版舞獅超屌的.....
新logo啊?"open up, sense more" 自己去體驗跟想像吧。
