Chalaw Basiwali performing at Flushing Town Hall & Joe’s Pub in NYC on Aug 17, 2018
  A collaboration between Chalaw Basiwali, a Native Taiwanese singer/songwriter, and Kilema, a Malagasy roots music master. The two musicians share their indigenous Austronesian roots, and the collaboration is a fusion of folk music with Bossa Nova rhythms. The clean sound of the acoustic guitar and driving percussion traverse an emotional spectrum from intense, deep expression and light-hearted joy. Basiwali is the music of the natural world. It’s made with a clean classical guitar sound and enthusiastic drumming, and vocals that move audiences wherever they’re from, with their Amis melodies and Latin rhymes. It’s truly a unique vision, a fusion of cultures that are deeply related. It feels like being hugged by both ends of the Pacific – sometimes stormy, sometimes calm – but you’re always in safe hands in the good ship Basiwali, and sailing on the wide, beautiful ocean…
