another Singapore-based band "Chou Pi Jiang"
is heading off to Ho Hai Yang Music festival
at Fulong in Taiwan.
It's always so heartening to find Singapore-based
bands being invited to music festivals in the world.
That SHOWS MUSIC TALENT is in Singapore as contrast
belief of no talent in Singapore!!!
Like Sixx (another awesome rap hip hop band from Singapore),
this band also focuses rapping together with music instruments.
So who exactly are these guys?
I got it from their facebook page:
The name CHOU PI JIANG 臭皮匠 (CPJ) is
derived from a Chinese proverb
which symbolizes the “strength of unity”.
Formed in the year 2000 with 7 core members,
Chou Pi Jiang is Singapore’s ﬁrst Chinese rap-rock-hip hop band.
Check out the video of their music:
The rappers actually rap in Mandarin!
I give my salute...to be honest,
its not easy to rap in Mandarin with all the
different pitch intonations in it!
These guys also performed at
Singapore Entertainment Awards 2009
Video of them performing at the awards:

They also had their cd launch back in 2009.
