Wendy Hsu on Issues of (In)visibility and Asian American Identities
Wendy Hsu on Issues of (In)visibility and Asian American Identities has followed Wendy Hsu's work since discovering her Asian American music blog,, several years ago. We also found it fascinating that she founded Dzian!, a vintage pan-Asian garage and surf rock band (Dzian! means "super-cool" in Taiwanese) around the time we asked our musical artist friends to help support the 2009 Typhoon Morakot fundraising relief efforts for hard-hit Taiwan. Her band revived and paid tribute to the Taiwanese grassroots performance style known as "Nakashi / Nakasi."
Wendy is an ethnomusicologist who studies Asian and Asian American popular music cultures. She received her PhD in Critical & Comparative Studies in Music at the University of Virginia and now is located in Los Angeles for a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center of Digital Learning & Research at Occidental College.
Recently, Wendy wrote a dissertation about the Asian American experiences of playing rock music. Although she doesn't consider herself a video artist, she was compelled to put something out on YouTube for "the sake of vitality. Well, we found the videos creative and insightful, and we wanted to share it with you. It's not for everyone, but if you were to take a thoughtful academic research paper on rock music and transform it artistically to video, this is probably what it would look like.
Watch carefully during the opening of Part 2 and see how inspired some musical craft and played a role in a greater community effort! Enjoy the following from Wendy Hsu:

New six piece-plus Asian-themed surf and garage-rock band modeled after a sort of Taiwanese burlesque performance called Nakashi and helmed by UVA experimental electronic musician Wendy Hsu. The name means "super cool," and the exclamation point is there because she requests that you always say it with both thumbs up.
