CHEN Wen-Shan was born in Pingtung in 1951. Traveling back and forth between indoor and outdoor traditional opera troupes, as well as Hakka folk music troupes, Chen set up theater troupes all over Taiwan. He performed with various troupes, including Ming Hwa Yuan Arts and Cultural Group, and when he established the Tzu Yu Yan Opera Troupe, Chen often won awards in theater competitions in southern Taiwan. Chen has been invited on a number of occasions to sing and perform gezaixi and Hakka tea-picking songs at the National Center for Traditional Arts. His naturally powerful voice and full stylistic range have won him innumerable accolades. In recent years, Chen has been working closely with the government and public agencies to promote gezaixi.
