#WaldoLostInTaiwan

In this heartwarming film, be prepared to go deep into the life of Dallas Waldo, a bilingual rap artist who performed on screens and stages across Asia while based in Taipei. Waldo knew the land, language and culture like a local. He also had great success promoting Mandarin hip hop culture with his original rhymes and groundbreaking events like Diss RBL. 

However, last winter Waldo flew to Canada to reunite with his parents after nearly a decade in Asia when he discovered his mother was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. Despite the pandemic and incessant lockdowns that were rampant in Canada, Waldo left a COVID-free Taiwan to be with his mother and father in these tough times. The mini-doc #WaldoLostInTaiwan stresses the importance of family and identity in Waldo’s 8 year tenure in Taiwan.

About The Artist

Dallas Waldo is a Canadian rap artist who lived and performed in Taiwan for nearly a decade using the Mandarin moniker 阿龍. In 2014, Dallas founded the world’s first Mandarin acapella rap battle league in Taipei, Diss RBL (Rap Battle League) and took the scene by storm. The success of Diss kickstarted a riveting 7-year professional career that had Waldo performing for festival crowds of 10000 people and hosting TV shows in Thailand. Waldo recently returned to Canada during the pandemic to reconnect with family and explore new opportunities of connecting East and West through music and culture.
