Known for their catchy, modern tunes, Tai Chi are a Chinese canto-rock band. Founded in Hong Kong in 1985, they became known that same year for winning the first edition of the Carlsberg Pop Music Festival. In 1986, the band won “Best Promising New Act” at the RTHK Top 10 Gold Songs Awards and released their second album, Lost, quickly becoming one of the most successful bands of the territory. Some of their most popular songs include the hits “Don’t Let Me Go”, “Every Single Word”, “Red Mobile” and “Crystal”. They belong to a 1980s generation of Hong Kong musicians known as the "Band-boom Era", which also includes the groups Fundamental, Beyond, Tat Ming Pair, Blue Jeans, Small Island, Raidas and Citybeat.

In the last few years, Tai Chi has also collaborated with other legends of the Hong Kong music scene such as George Lam and Andy Hui. They have played to a crowded Hong Kong Coliseum on several occasions, including the band's 15th and 20th anniversaries, and as recently as May 2012.
