Making their U.S. debut, the SFIAF performance of world music-improvisation ensemble KaDaoYin features saxophones, flutes, pianos, and traditional Chinese instruments. Based in both Taipei, Taiwan and London, England, KaDaoYin stands at the crossroads of Chinese and Western music cultures. The acoustic sound of KaDaoYin draws from Contemporary Classical music, as well as Chinese and Asian Folk music, and melds it with improvisation and Jazz. And the band’s two albums have received various accolades: Four Characters won multiple prizes at the Taiwan Indie Music Awards, and Slow received the “Taiwan Grammy” in Traditional Arts.
