Sauljaljui, a vocalist from the Paiwan-tribe village of Kapanan in Mudan Township, Pingtung, has a solid, powerful yet gentle voice. After focusing on heavy metal in her college years, she returned to her hometown and gradually changed her preferred style while working with the Hengchun Folk Music Group and MAQATI, music organizations near her home. Maintaining the structure of indigenous music, her work has a singular and immediate appeal with an integration of pop, folk, Latin, and world music.

In 2011 and 2014, she won the Taiwan Pop Music Composition and Songwriting Contest (Indigenous Language Category) two times with the song “Musical Rite of Passage” and “Lament of Colored Cloth.”

In 2016, she released her first solo album, Tracing the River of Life, which was nominated at the 28th Golden Melody Awards and 7th Golden Indie Music Awards. In 2019, she released her second album, Insides Revealed. In her work, she holds to the motto of “finding a path home through music.”
