Kapa Arkieh

高頌典

Kapa Arkieh is from the indigenous people of Taiwan – Amis. He won Best New Artist in 2018 by See Music Shanghai. Appeared on a Netflix series “Wu Assassins.” Also 2 Leo Awards for his work on “Dead Man Switch.” His music is a combination of traditional Amis Music and Modern sounds. Some say it’s “Alternative Hip Hop” however, he calls it his “own lane.” With the sounds of his ancestors and contemporary music, he has created something that is uniquely his own.

"Growing up Amis (Indigenous Taiwanese) as an immigrant in Canada was tough. Societal pressures made me feel ashamed of my heritage, and my mother's stories of being bullied for it filled me with fear. But through music, I aim to change that and embrace my cultural identity proudly."
