Performances by Taiwanese pop group Mayday at a music festival in France received rave reviews from international music workers Monday, with the production company for former Australian band Savage Garden describing them as "perfect."
Mayday's show is matchless in terms of creativity, stage performance, and rapport, the production company said, adding that its composition is "perfect."
Mayday, along with singer-songwriter Yen-j and the aboriginal group Matzka took the center stage at the MIDEM Music Festival in Cannes, which is reputed to be the world's largest trade fair for the music industry.
Topping off the the festival's main event, "Made in Taiwan," with hit songs including "Sun Wu Kong," "Tenderness," and "Leaving the Surface of the Earth," the band had fans screaming and dancing to the tune.
"It was as if I heard 50,000 people rooting for us," the band's lead singer Ashin said, while Stone, the band's guitarist, invited audience members to Taiwan for their concerts.
Meanwhile, Yen-j captivated fans with his signature jazz songs while Matzka grabbed the limelight by performing music blending their native language with reggae.
The four-day annual festival, which runs through Jan. 31, has been a platform bringing together musicians, businesspeople, and cultural policy makers for cooperation since 1967.
