YANG Xiu-Qing was born in Taipei in 1934. She is a major proponent of Taiwanese gezaixi’s narrator art form, and currently one of the last surviving professional Taiwanese ballad singers. She went blind at the age of four due to an untreated cold. Her older adopted sister, Xiao Jin-Feng, taught her the art of singing traditional ballads and how to play the yueqin (moon guitar). She married Yang Zai-Xing in 1956. The two of them travelled all over Taiwan, enriching the history of ballad singing in Taiwan. Yang has been very important in preserving and passing on the art of ballad singing to future generations.
