CHEN SHENG IN CONCERT 2016

Taiwanese singer-songwriter Bobby Chen Sheng released his first album, The Crowded Playground, in 1988 and continues to put out new music in his inimitable mix of sharply observed lyrics and distinctively homely vocals. His latest record, Do You Still Remember? (2015), is a rumination on memory and the comforts it offers.
