LAI Bi-Xia (a. k. a. LAI Luan-Ying) is a famous singer of Hakka folksongs. She was born in Hsinchu County's Chutung Township in 1932. She was obsessed with Hakka folksongs from an early age and was determined to find a teacher to learn the art form. Lai studied traditional narrative singing (shuochang), folksongs, traditional morality songs and tea-picking songs with Guan Luo-Cheng, Lai Ting-Han and Su Wan-Sung. In her youth, Lai worked at several different radio stations, giving her opportunities to collect an extensive amount of Hakka folksongs to publish. Lai introduced Hakka folksongs into theater and created the first Hakka film — "Tea Mountain Love Song." In 2011, she was recognized by the Ministry of Culture as Important Traditional Art Preserver in Hakka folksong. In June 2012, she was honored by receiving National Award for the Arts by NCAF. She's been intensely devoting herself to disseminating traditional Hakka music.
