MoShang is a South African living in Taichung, Taiwan. A sound-jeweller by his own description, MoShang has been collecting rough audio-diamonds from the streets of Taiwan - be they overheard conversations, street-ads blared from the ubiquitous blue-trucks, street processions, funeral chants... These all find their way into the music on this page. Yours to enjoy!

MOSHANG: Made in TaiwanMOSHANG: Made in Taiwan

In Taiwan, the chill-out lounge and the temple gardens are within comfortable walking distance from one another... on your way, you will hear ads blared from blue-trucks, street processions, Buddhist funeral chants, snippets of songs wafting from windows.

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Let's face it - the big labels have long held the monopoly on dictating what should be popular music. The internet is slowly but surely democratizing the process of defining popular culture... long lives!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
A-major? Any key, as long as it's about the music.
Band History:
Although he is slightly embarrassed to admit it, MoShang (aka Jean Marais) started his musical career as a choral singer in his native South Africa in the early 1980's. Around the same time, he received his first computer - a Commodore VIC-20. His passion for music and computers would eventually culminate in the release of his debut solo album Made In Taiwan in 2004. Along the way, MoShang was the front man of Duusman (an Afrikaans language art rock band), played the saxophone for Tsunami (on the Gallo Jazz label), and produced 10 tracks on three award-winning music and poetry albums with the celebrated South African poet Breyten Breytenbach. He was half of the Afrikaans pop-duo 12Hz with Riku Latti (their debut Nou has been described as the most progressive Afrikaans album ever) and he received a South African AVANTI award for his music to the short film Angels in a Cage. MoShang moved to Taiwan in 2002 and is currently performing live as a solo instrumental DJ and with the improvised lounge outfit Into Thin Air.
