HEPNOVA is dedicating our cover version of Green Island Serenade (ç¶ å³¶å°å¤œæ›²) to jailed Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. As a song that was popular in Taiwan, China, and across the Sinosphere, we think it is a poignant symbol of cross-strait solidarity. On the surface, the lyrics are a pop song about a man admiring a silent woman from afar, but it has also been interpreted by many to be a veiled protest against government censorship and oppression.
We hope you enjoy the song, learn it’s meaning, and pass it on.
You can also sign a petition by Change.org or Avaaz.org calling for Ai Weiwei’s release.
