A few days ago I went to a music festival “Sunset on Sizihwan Bay and fall in love with Kaoshiung” (愛戀高雄). It was the last day of a long running festival going from the 6th of July till the 31st of August, featuring free parking, free water-banana and kayak rides and open performances of some of Taiwan’s finest musicians and singers.

On the last day, it was all about the good old times, with singers that were very popular around 20 years ago. Surprisingly, I was able to recognize a few songs. It was all very well done, with beautiful songs and terrific entertainment for over 3 hours.

I have loads of videos from the event, with selected videos of most of the singers. Will my Taiwanese audience help me with the names of the singers and the songs of the following?

The students at NSYSU are truly lucky for studying with this kind of sea scenery, just a walk from the beach. 🙂

Were you able to sing along as well? The festival looks like it could be a lot of fun – we’re going to have to check it out. BTW, what does a water banana look like?
