Waa Wei   魏如萱
 
Taiwanese indie-pop chanteuse Waa Wei is known for her distinctive sweet vocals. Since launching her musical foray as a solo artist in 2007, Waa (known to fans as "Wawa" or "doll") has released two albums and one single. She has experimented with her musical form in these releases, with a resulting style that is delightful, captivating and often surprising.

Waa joined Taiwanese music distributor Avant Garden Records to release her first solo album La Dolce Vita in November 2007. A full-on multinational affair, the album saw tracks helmed by artists such as Maximilian Hecker from Germany and Mondialito from Japan. Filled with electronic ambience and bossa nova overtones, the album was met with an overwhelmingly positive reception and remains a unique offering on Taiwan's music market.

In 2008, Waa released a three-track single, Bubbles, in collaboration with music writer and producer Chen Chien-chi. That same year, Waa also got her feet wet in cinema and theater, appearing in the feature film Candy Rain and in a musical theater rendition of the book A Chance of Sunshine, by Taiwanese artist Jimmy Liao.

Waa's highly anticipated second album Graceful Porcupine was released in May 2010.
