In an unexpected crossover collaboration that will leave indie fans wanting more, Taiwan’s
Shallow Levee 淺提 and Australia-via-Taiwan’s Jaguar Jonze have announced an intimate
collaborative showcase titled 《Soup & Ocean Presents 001: NO DRAMA》which will be held at
the iconic MOONROMANTIC 青山月見ル君想フ Taipei venue on the 1st November 2023.

Prefacing Jaguar Jonze’s upcoming showcase at Tainan’s LUCfest festival and Shallow Levee’s
second Japan tour in November, the collaborative showcase represents both acts’ shared
creative spontaneity despite their differing yet complementary musical sensibilities.

The opportunity to collaborate on the showcase came through a chance meeting between
mutual friends where Shallow Levee’s drummer Sam Huang and Jaguar Jonze were introduced
via Facetime. Upon realising that they were mutually appreciative of each others’ work, solid
plans were made to collaborate on a joint showcase in Taipei.

When first introduced to Shallow Levee, Jaguar was blown away by how much she related to
the messages in the band’s music and philosophy.

“I was so moved when I first heard Shallow Levée’s music and felt it was really complementing
to the feelings and messages I find important to say as an artist. I’m super honoured to be able
to share the stage with such an iconic indie band from Taiwan.”



Marking the start of her Taiwan tour, the show marks an unprecedented cross-cultural
collaboration between Taiwanese and Australian cultural icons; coalescing in this intimate
showcase. Of the tour, Jaguar shares:

“It’s always been my dream to take my band to Taiwan and I’m so excited to be able to share my
music with new Taiwanese friends and show the culture of where half of me is from with my
band. It’s been a very long and difficult journey to get my Taiwanese passport and I finally got it
this year! So I’m also super excited to use it for the first time, not just as a visitor but as an artist
and person who is so proud to be half Taiwanese!”

Always deeply interested in the possibilities of bringing their music to wider audiences, Shallow
Levee found much resonance in the stories and experiences of Jaguar Jonze too, and
especially her intention to explore her Taiwanese roots further.

“We found many similarities in Jaguar Jonze’ connection with Taiwan, and our journey of music
discovery through our conversations and felt a rare closeness through that.”



Known for their emotive and melodic blend of alt-rock which highlights unique perspectives of
societal and cultural issues, Shallow Levee brings a wealth of experience performing in the
Greater China live scene. Inviting Jaguar Jonze to participate in this first-of-a-kind offline
collaboration is a milestone that speaks highly of their commitment to their craft. Of this project,
Shallow Levee shared:

“Shallow Levee’s works have always concerned themselves with the environment, culture, and
people’s feelings; we’d like to invite our fans to discover feminist artist Jaguar Jonze. We believe
that through this performance we’ll bring a new feeling to everyone.”
