Prairie WWWW is an experimental folk band formed in Taipei, Taiwan in 2010. Its music combines poetry, folk, ambient and tribal elements. The band seeks inspiration from the might of nature, and with a mixture of sounds and visual arts in their performances, they manage to bring forward to their audiences the experience of their unique soundscape visually and aurally.
The four Ws in Prairie’s band name are not to be pronounced, serving as a pictogram for a waveform, as well as the imagery of the grass that blowing in the wind.
International performances in the past two years include Primavera Sound (Spain), Fuji Rock (Japan), SXSW, Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia. Their music has also been released on the Dutch label Guruguru Brain.
