CHI Li-Nan (1940-2016) is a Taiwanese composer and music producer who plays an important role in the Mandarin popular music in Singapore, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Born in Township of Shuilin, Yunlin County, Chi had a poor childhood due to his family's declining financial circumstances, which eventually caused him to quit vocational school in 1959. Through the introduction of the singer Chi Lu-Hsia, Chi took music lessons with the famous composer Yang San-Lang and performed in Yang’s Golden Cat Song-and-Dance Troupe. Then he enlisted in the Army in 1962 and entered its recreational group, where he gradually began to show his musical talent, even organizing a military band with 18 people. After finishing his military service, Chi Li-Nan had been working as music director, bandleader and saxophonist in the nightclub bands. In 1971, he was invited to Singapore’s Wisma Theater, serving as the band director and the program planner while working at Life Records as its music director. At that time he also wrote his first song “Regret Falling in Love with You” for Teresa Teng. Then he became the first foreign member of the Japan Composer’s Association in 1978 and won the silver prize of the 12th KOGA Awards next year. In 1992, he produced Taiwan Folk Music Symphony: Yang San-Lang Memorial Album, which won the 16th Golden Tripod Awards for the best musical album. During his lifetime, Chi Li-Nan wrote more than 700 popular songs and over 300 pieces of Buddhist and Taoist music. His most famous works include “Regret Falling in Love with You”, “It's Dusk Again” and “Moonlight over the Scent of Flowers”, etc.
