Taï Phong is a French progressive rock band formed by two Vietnamese brothers Khanh Mai (guitar, voice) and Tai Sinh (bass, guitar, voice, keyboards), in 1975.[1] They were joined by Jean-Alain Gardet (keyboards), Stephan Caussarieu (drums, percussions) and Jean-Jacques Goldman (guitar, voice, violin).

They released three albums between 1975 and 1979: Taï Phong (1975), Windows (1976) and Last Flight (1979). Sister Jane (1975), the first single from their first album, was a radio hit.

The band reunited in 2000 with Khanh Maï and Stephan Caussarieu. They are joined by Hervé Acosta (voice) and Angelo Zarzuelo (keyboards).

As of 2007, Khan Maï remains the only original member of the band.
