Ai Ai Ai is a contemporary Asian music, language and cultural production from a group of young Sydney-based musical performers.
With an Asian-Australian background and an average age of 18, they have performed at Sydney cultural and corporate events, malls, on local radio at Community Radio Station FM99.3 and even overseas with an appearance on regional Chinese TV & Radio. Each year they perform popular songs to around 100,000 people as part of the Sydney Lunar New Year Twilight Parade.
In 2011, thanks to help from local sculpture artist Lucy East, they designed and built a Rabbit themed parade float. In 2012 they created a Blue Water Dragon complete with a bubble machine !! and in 2013 a shimmering golden Snake wrapped itself around the vehicle float. Since starting in 2010 they have been delighting crowds at New Year concerts in Lane Cove, Chatswood, Bankstown, Ryde-Eastwood, Hurstville, Cabramatta, Blacktown, Parramatta and other cultural events over the past 5 years.
Contemporary C-Pop, M-Pop, K-Pop, V-Pop songs made famous by artists not usually heard of in Australia, like Thái Tuyt Trâm, Bai Ann, Super Junior, Teresa Teng, Jolin Tsai, and Faye Wong are sung in cheong-sam by young singers who have an Asian family connection.
