Ximen Artist: 黃奕儒
In the midst of the oldest neighborhood in all of Taipei (Wanhua), you will find a magical place called Ximen. Ximen, also known as “Ximending” just so happens to be my home as well and I couldn’t have found a more amazing place to live in Taipei. Each night hundreds of Taipei’s youth crowd the busy streets with tons of tourists from around the world.
Every night there are street performers of all varieties in Ximen including singers, musicians, magicians, escape artists, and even movies being filmed all in this one magical Taipei neighborhood. It was just a few nights ago that I ran into a wonderful singer named 黃奕儒 Jeff Huang. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to speak to him but I picked up his business card and contacted him.
黃奕儒 Jeff Huang is not only a good singer but a very friendly Taiwanese guy! He was able to provide me with a music video of him singing live in Ximen filmed by someone else. He happens to be singing one of my favorite Taiwanese songs in this Music video called 月亮代表我的心. The video is a little shaky at first but gets better so please take a moment to watch.
He will be performing again in Ximen this coming Tuesday evening so if you are in Taipei, I highly recommend you coming out to Ximen and enjoying the live performance. Also, please take a moment to visit his Facebook fanpage and give him a “like” to help support local Taiwanese performance artists.
