Tmalam lmuhuw (recording for Huayuan Elementary School)
I am lucky to have friend and collaborators among Atayal indigenous people in Taiwan.
Since 2009, Atelier Hui-Kan (me and Wan-Shuen Tsai) have been working with Pawang Iban, teacher at Taoshan Elementary School and now in Huayuan Elementary School, in Wufeng district, Hsinchu County. He is a linguist and musician and he’s teaching Atayal traditional music and language to the kids.
Now he has a project about teaching old songs, in the old style. In December 2016, we recorded a demo, hoping to make a full recording project soon (in March 2017). This recording is the first song of our demo.
