Abao and Bulareyaung are talented cousins, acclaimed for their stunning vocal and dance performances. Both are from the indigenous Paiwan tribe and call Taitung their home, writes Vogue Taiwan. Abao sings in her mother tongue, and supports young indigenous musicians; Bulareyaung left New York to return to his hometown in Taitung, where he continues to live life as Art.
“I became a dancer first, then a choreographer. Then I wanted to become Bulareyaung. Over the years I have been reminding myself to reflect on what it is to be ‘me’. After returning to my hometown Taitung, I started to understand that this is actually a task of a lifetime.” – Bulareyaung.
