O-Kai Singers

O-Kai Singers is an Aboriginal Taiwanese vocal group, winning the national champions at the Taiwan International Contemporary A Cappella Festival two months upon its founding, they broke even more records of the Taiwan a cappella scene by winning 17 different awards in five years, including 4 national champions, runners up at an international competition in Europe, and scoring 3rd place twice in international competitions in Europe. While sharing the stage with top international groups including: The Swingle Singers, The Real Group, and The Idea of North, they also pushed the total number of performances to more than 500 within seven years.

The outstanding vocal abilities of the Aboriginal Taiwanese group members have astounded many musical professionals, "Even in professional groups from Vienna do we hear such perfect harmonies." Günther Theuring, master conductor of Vienna shares with the fans. Vocal Jazz master Phil Mattson also invited the O-Kai Singers to perform at the Carnegie Hall of New York after hearing their outstanding performance.

Aside from singing, O-Kai Singers also arrange and produce music in different genres. The Children's songs albums from the Council of Cultural Affairs of Taiwan feature over 200 songs written, arranged, sung, and produced by O-Kai Singers, and have been nominated for the Golden Melody Awards.

O-Kai Singers are also active in the musical education scene, holding workshops and touring both nationally and internationally, inspiring and leading new vocal groups to winning international awards. After a performance at the National Tainan University of the Arts, one of the group members were invited to teach at the school, holding the first professional a cappella course in Taiwan history. Group members are also often invited as judges to international competitions such as: Taiwan International A Cappella Competition, Taiwan Contemporary A Cappella Competition, The Sing-off China, Hong Kong A Cappella Competition, Shanghai A Cappella Competition, and the first A Cappella Competition in China.

During the year 2012, the O-Kai Singers collaborated with Grammy award winners such as Take 6 to produce their first a cappella album, which will be released under TC Music.
