Hear folk songs, works for Chinese orchestras, and of course, the old hits everyone here still knows how to belt out today.

She has a deep, husky, and mellow voice that’s instantly recognizable, and a string of hits going back thirty years now. This is Huang Hsiao-hu, the stage name of singer Huang Chun-feng, but you might also hear her referred to by her other nickname: “The Queen of the Pub”.
