Suming, who won the Golden Melody Award for Best Aboriginal Album in 2011, recently won the Best Original Movie Song Award at the 52nd Golden Horse Awards and the Best Original Film Song at the 27th Golden Melody Awards with the theme song "Don't Give Up" for "Children of the Sun". Song of the Year Award. When he brought the award back to the tribe, everyone came and touched it curiously. They never thought that aboriginal music would come so close to the sacred temple of music one day. Such a head-up award is very majestic, but Suming still modestly said that there are more people in the tribe than he can sing. Although he has a golden song and a golden horse, it will not make him feel a sense of distance from the tribe. Instead, he thinks more about his own value and positioning. GAU_9167 Suming If all music festivals are designed to attract rockers and party guests, is there any kind of music that can attract culture and people who love and advocate nature. Who developed in other places, found that every time he released an album, he sang in Taipei, which made him think about why he couldn't come back to Taitung to sing. But if you want to sing, you must have a stage, and this idea led to the birth of the Taitung Music Festival. The Amis are the ethnic group with the most songs and dances among the aborigines in Taiwan. Every tribe, every age group, the elderly, children, young people, men and women has their own songs. There are rich themes and cultures that can develop music festivals. . This is the most distinctive number list place of the Amis people. With such good conditions and everyone's yearning for the singing of the aboriginal people, there seems to be no reason to refuse to hold the music festival. After a long period of integration of tribal forces in Taitung, the Amis Music Festival finally held its first session in 2013, becoming the first tribal music festival based on pure aboriginal music in Taiwan. Ltd. Amis Music Festival Although there were various ideas during the preparatory period, Suming said that things should not be done deliberately or in a hurry. It must be excavated from the elements in life and extended along the life and cultural context. Only in this way will it be natural and there will be a very sincere performance. . It's like letting the band of the tribe's grandpa and grandma come on stage to perform rock music. The oldest is 91 years old and the youngest is 72 years old. There are more than 20 people in total. At club meeting time, start organizing, sing if you can't play an instrument, and dance if you can't sing. To sing Amis songs with rock music, you need to find a music teacher for adaptation, but to communicate with the elders, you must use the ethnic language and get young tribesmen to translate. It took a total of nine months to practice the group. Practice jazz drums, electric guitar, and play bass every day. In the past, the elderly would think it was something for young people, but in fact, they are curious. Through performance opportunities, they let them try, and they feel more alive in the moment. Transforming townships with music that affects hearts Through the platform of the music festival, the large and small forces in the tribe are closely linked, and their talents can be exerted, so that traditions can also have good channels to be spread. Suming chooses to use music to develop culture.
