Voice of the Hakka people

The voice of the Hakka people has taken different forms throughout different ages. It has been expressed at times through singing, performing, folk songs to convey joyous praise and indignant protest. Over a period of more than 1,700 years, the Hakka people have gone through five migrations and historical records show that two Hakka people sought to establish a branch of a temple in Taiwan in 1586 in Lukang, Taiwan. Lukang was known as the economic and transport hub of central Taiwan in earlier times.
