10/21 (Sun.) 21:00 MATZKA│Taiwan│Super-popular indigenous Taiwanese reggae
Matzka was born in Taitung, Taiwan. A Taiwanese aboriginal reggae singer, guitarist, music producer, and songwriter, he started his band MATZKA, in which he is the lead singer, in 2010. He then began going solo in 2015 with the album Vuvu Reggae. Reggae is his main style, but his work also combines elements of rock, pop, jazz, rap, R&B, folk, heavy metal, hip-hop and more. His lyrics are mostly inspired by his lifestyle, while at the same time, he spreads the Taiwanese aboriginal sense of humor through his music. His influences are the groove in his blood and the beauty of his homeland, which he has converted into a unique kind of reggae that allows the listener to feel his joyful disposition.
He has performed at many music festivals, including the Spring Wave Music and Art Festival, Hohaiyan Rock Festival, SUMMER SONIC, Liverpool Sound City, Strawberry Music Festival, Simple Life (in Shanghai), South by Southwest (SXSW), the Glastonbury Festival and many others.
