Yao Su Rong, from Taiwan, still very, very popular in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Malaysia... She was doing a concert a long, long time ago in Taiwan, a lot of her songs deal with heart break and at the time a lot of her songs were forbidden in Taiwan because all songs had to be "happy songs". At the concert many fans kept screaming for those forbidden songs, she gave in, performed one and got arrested. She never recorded or performed after that and is now an elderly lady living a quiet life in Singapore......



Wong Ching Yian (also translated as Huang Qing Yuan)... They used to call him the Elvis from Singapore :) Back in the 60's together with Maurice Patton and The Melodians he developed some music styles knows as Off Beat Cha Cha, Hala Hala and A Go Go, mixing Chinese traditional music with Western music, it didn't just caught on, it set the whole of South East Asia on fire, so next time you see an album from say James Last called "A Go Go" you now know where that term is coming from......
