CHOU Lan-Ping, born in 1926, was a post-war composer and a super star in the field of Mandarin popular music and film music. His representative works include the widely-known songs, such as “Green Island Serenade,” “I'd Like to Marry a Han Man,” and “Beautiful Formosa ,” and the music for the “Huangmei Opera” film- “Butterfly Lovers” (1963), which made him become one of the best film composers in the Chinese film circle. He composed hundreds of songs and more than 100 film music pieces. He also received the award of “Best Original Film Song” from the Golden Horse Awards three times and the award of “Best Music” from Asia Pacific Film Festival. CHOU had an fairly unstable life: being born in mainland China, becoming a budding composer in Taiwan, and reaching his professional climax in Hong Kong. He is considered as the pioneer of Mandarin popular music and the first song writer who includs the subject of Taiwan in Mandarin popular music. His musical works express nostalgia of Chinese culture, combine Taiwanse elements, and present his imagination of Taiwan as hometown. CHOU died in 1971.
