TANYA Chua wants to organise Mandopop’s first all-girl music festival.
She mooted the idea on stage during the 23rd Golden Melody Awards – widely recognised as the Chinese equivalent of the Grammy Awards – in Taiwan last month, where she bagged the prestigious Best Female Vocalist accolade for the third time.
To some, it might just be a passing remark. But for the 37-year-old Singaporean singer-songwriter, it has been in the back of her mind for several years.
“Ideally, it should recapture the spirit of (the iconic 60s festival) Woodstock and Lilith Fair, the all-women music tour started by Sarah McLachlan,” she said in an interview with LOUD at The Regent Hotel yesterday.
