“Son Montuno en Hakka” feat Tito｜Taiwan｜Perfect blend of Hakka and Latin
Tito Tang was born in a Hakka village in Miaoli County, Taiwan. Having lived in Paraguay for years while young, he was influenced by South American culture and thus obtained a Latin music foundation.
Stimulated by two very different cultures, in expressing his curiosity related to worldview and his feelings for Taiwan, Tito combines Latin instruments and tempos with the gentle-toned Hakka language, creating a Hakka sentiment loaded with Latin flavor. His 2013 album, Antipodes, won Best Hakka Vocalist at the 24th Golden Melody Awards. By incorporating Hakka music into cultural elements from around the world, he is giving the traditional impression of Hakka a new look, and through his original creations, he is bringing Hakka into the diversity of the new era and the international realm.
