Introducing: G.J. Lee from Taiwan

Standard

We are pleased to be able to present our first ever artist from Taiwan, G.J. Lee!

08907.jpgWell-known in his home country of Taiwan, G.J.’s performances are, as he describes it, “characterised by a richness of emotion and meticulous detail”. Not only interested in the ukulele itself, but also the greater world of music, he has arranged many familiar tunes for the ukulele. He plays a variety of music, including classical, folk, animation and film music, and Eastern and Western pop music, among other genres. His goal is to touch people’s hearts through music, as he believes music is always an effective way to connect with people.

G.J. will perform traditional Taiwanese music on his ukulele during the World Music Dinner Friday August 26th. You’ll also be able to catch him during the Kala Opening Night at the Hilton Thursday August 25th.

In case you were wondering what G.J. stands for, it is in fact “good job”, as he explains, “I always expect myself to do a “Good Job” when performing my own music”. We’re sure he’ll be doing just that during this year’s Cairns Ukulele Festival!
