Taiwanese musicians and artists of Taiwanese descent making noise overseas have become more visible in recent years. Whether singing indie rock songs in Mandarin, adding traditional instrumentation to progressive rock or confronting the Asian American experience, they often bring a fusion of cultures to their recordings and performance. Therefore, Island of Sound has extended beyond the shores of Taiwan to celebrate these musical efforts.
