Studio Monkey Shoulder Taiwan: Sonia Calico w/ Jon Du

To celebrate the launch of Studio Monkey Shoulder, we've organised a special series to spotlight the 5 different countries we're focusing on this year. 

Sonia Calico is a Taipei-based DJ/producer at the forefront of Taiwan’s dance music scene. Her sound is influenced by bass/club music fused with a variety of sonic elements including Mandopop and traditional East Asian ceremonial instrumentation.

Sonia will be taking us on a journey through the diverse array of music hailing from Taiwan. Expect everything from early 2000s Mandopop to modern reinterpretations of classic Taiwanese hits, songs blending Taiwan's indigenous folk melodies, alongside the freshest sounds crafted by today's music creators.

She’ll also be chatting with American Taiwanese music producer DJ Jon Du about his musical journey through the grassroots music scene in Taipei.

This episode is part of a series to celebrate the launch of Studio Monkey Shoulder – a new global music initiative dedicated to empowering and celebrating innovative grassroots music communities. Applications are open now in Taiwan, the UK, India, Nigeria and Miami (USA) for a £10,000 fund plus support from Worldwide FM to help bring to life an original project where people come together to connect, create, and discover music.
