Mando-pop superstar A-Lin and Indian rapper Badshah will be walking the red carpet and attending the 2017 ARIA with Apple Music on Tuesday, 28 November. The Annual Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards are a celebration of all that is great and popular in local music.
Taiwanese singer, lyricist and producer A-Lin is one of the nations most celebrated vocalists and is one of the Mando-pop A-listers in Greater China, Singapore, and Malaysia. Consistently praised for injecting soaring vocals and soul into her music, A-Lin has firmly distinguished herself as one of Asia’s most renowned pop artists.
Whilst A-Lin joined Sony Music Taiwan in 2014, her music career shot to fame a year later when she was invited to appear on the third season of the Chinese reality singing competition, I Am A Singer. A-Lin’s original songs always endorse a pop anthem status, with tracks such as ‘All In’, ‘Pseudo-Single, Yet Single’, ‘Before, After’ and her latest single, ‘Go’ becoming instant favourites across Asia!
A-Lin’s latest world concert tour SONAR, has performed over 30 showcases across 3 continents, including U.S.A. and Australia, an extraordinary feat for the Asian artist.
Badshah is undisputedly the crowd favourite of Indian hip-hop. Known as ‘The Anthem Maker’, Badshah is a popular rapper, singer, music director and composer, and is a name to be reckoned with amidst the international music scene. Badshah’s music can be best described as Bollywood infused hip-hop—the Indian star produces records that are punchy, rhythmic, energetic, and cool. Earlier this year, Badshah collaborated with American electronic music group Major Lazer on the party single, ‘I Wanna Be Free’. The dance influencers combined their unique music flavours and cultures on the track, to unite audiences across the globe to come together through innovative dance music.
