As a special preview for the upcoming CAAMFest (formerly the San Francisco International Asian-American Film Festival), Hong Kong’s Branded Ltd (MusicMatters.Asia), Singapore’s Viki.com, and an alliance of Asia’s leading indie music promoters (China : Maybe Mars / Korea : DFSB Kollective / Taiwan : The Wall) will co-present the launch of San Francisco Music Matters Asia (March 7-8, 2013).
