Hokkien music has its own
following among the Chinese diaspora all over the world—and in Malaysia, there
would be those who love Hokkien music and who are familiar with such names as
Cai Qiu Feng, Long Qian Yu, Chang Hsiu Ching and Chen Yin Git.
The four are big names in
the Hokkien music scene in Taiwan—and they will soon be performing at Resorts
World Genting. To be held at the Arena of Stars on 19 November 2016, 8.30pm,
Taiwan Hokkien 4 Divas Live in Genting promises to be a good spectacle, with
the singers delivering popular Hokkien hits, both old and new.
Cai Qiu Feng is songbird
idolised by many of her fans. She has performed in concerts all over the world
specifically in the US, Canada and Asia. The singer has released more than 30
albums since her debut album that came out when she was only 13. She is also
well-known for singing the theme songs for many Taiwanese television drama series.
Long Qian Yu is another
household name, crowned Queen of Hokkien by her Taiwanese fans. Like Cai Qiu
Feng, she started singing at a young age but her focus was then on Mandarin
songs. She switched to Hokkien songs in 1987 and over the years achieved
popularity for performing theme songs for many Taiwanese television drama
Chang Hsiu Ching, on the
other hand, first became famous for impersonating other stars. She, too, began
singing at a tender age—participating in a competition at eight and moving on
to TV shows when she was 12. Among her achievements was winning the Best
Hokkien Female Singer award at the 6th Golden Melody Awards in 1993.
Chen Ying Git, for her
part, is not only a singer but is also a producer. Of Taiwanese Hakka heritage,
she, in fact, has been producing albums for a long time—through the 80s and
90s. She was a bar singer in a US Military Club when she was 18; her
involvement in the field then was due to her family facing financial crisis.
But she eventually tasted success, and today has more than 30 Chinese and
Hokkien albums to her name.
