ZHANG Hong-Ming was a famous nanguan musician. He was born in the Maxiang district of Fujian province's Tongan County (currently a district in Xiamen City) on Sept. 30, 1920, and died on July 26, 2013. From an early age, Zhang was encouraged by his elders to learn nanguan music. Zhang eventually studied how to play the pipa and singing with Gao Ming-Wang. Due to the civil war between the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese Nationalist Party, he came to Taiwan in exile and stayed for more than six decades. Zhang became a teacher in the Tainan Nansheng She Ensemble in 1971, and became involved in various educational activities. He was eventually recognized by the Ministry of Culture as Important Traditional Art Preserver in nanguan music. Zhang was an important progenitor of nanguan in Taiwan.
