楊秀衡 YANG Xiu-Heng 客家音樂家 返回

楊秀衡,客家音樂家;1939 年 12 月 3 日出生於高雄美濃。有「客家音樂活字典」稱號,是全臺碩果僅存會客家「撮把戲」的民俗藝人。雖然身為客家人,但最初學的卻是閩南人的歌仔戲,因此將客家「撮把戲」融合了閩南文化之色彩,成立了「楊家國術館」與「豪記綜藝團」,在民眾結婚、新居落成等「喜慶場」演出。曾獲得「高雄縣政府優良民間藝人」的肯定。

YANG Xiu-Heng was born in Meinong, Kaohsiung in 1939. Nicknamed “the walking Hakka music dictionary,” he was the last person in Taiwan still able to perform a particular style of Hakka music called “Chhot Pà Hi.” Although he was Hakka, he studied mostly Minnan (Hoklo) gezaixi (Taiwanese opera) music, which is why he fused Minnan gezaixi music with the Hakka “Chhot Pà Hi” music. He established Yang’s National Arts School and the Hao Ji Assorted Arts Troupe, performing at weddings and celebrations for people moving into new houses. He was awarded the Kaohsiung County Government Superior Folk Artist Award.
