Had a chance to visit one of the most beautiful place in Taiwan - Tai Tung. The warmth and hospitality left a very strong impression. The organic foods were always freshly prepared by the gathering effort of the young and old. Striking mountains, cliffs and grand sea view, the nature was mesmerizing. While visiting the local Tribes, there was a delightful encounter with the Amis Kakeng Music Group. It is a vocal band formed by young adults and children. They have the most natural instincts to create music, using mostly bamboo as materials to make their own instruments, together with simple melodies, simple words, simple rhythms, to express the strongest energy. The group was soon to be touring Europe; their leader said, Amis Tribe are the most happy and content people, and it is their wish to share their positivity with the rest of the world. It was their purity and energy that made me humble, and proud to be coming from the same island. Good luck Amis Kakeng!
