Advocacy through MUSIC - An introduction to those Taiwanese pioneers, May 4 in Squirrel Hill


Cafe Philo will host Justin Lin and his talk "Advocacy through MUSIC - An introduction to those Taiwanese pioneers" on May 4.

Advocacy through MUSIC - An introduction to those honorary Taiwanese pioneers

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we are excited to introduce audiences to the wide range of sounds and genres the independent and underground Taiwanese music scene has to offer. This event is more than just a musical showcase; it's a platform for pioneering artists who are using their voices to push for social change. Covering a broad spectrum of topics from politics and queer rights to indigenous culture and beyond, these musicians exemplify the power of music as a tool for advocacy and transformation. This event aims to enrich our understanding of the diverse and dynamic narratives that shape our world. Join us as we explore the rich musical landscapes and the compelling stories they tell, celebrating the spirit of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month through the universal language of music.

Come join us at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh - Squirrel Hill (Meeting Room B) for a special event celebrating the incredible impact of Taiwanese pioneers through music. Don't miss this unique opportunity to honor these remarkable individuals and be inspired by their stories. See you there!

The event runs from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh in Squirrel Hill, and free tickets are available online.

Korean singer BoyWithUke performing in Pittsburgh, April 27.


Korean singer BoyWithUke will perform in Pittsburgh on April 27 as part of his Lucid Dreams Tour. Ones To Watch summarized his sound in 2021:
While BoyWithUke’s music may drift toward popular indie and lo-fi sounds, incorporating his ukelele sets him apart from other artists heading down the same sonic path. In addition, his instrumental talent adds a fresh layer of artistry, blurring the line between acoustic and electronic beat sounds, often making you forget that one or the other is even there.
