"Chanting stories" is a kind of talking and chanting art, created and developed here in Taiwan. It is a kind of art fruit, combined with folk literature and folk music/songs, formed mainly with 4 sentences and 7 words for each sentences to be a rhymed verse. Customarily, it is called as Si-ku-lian or Chi-Zi-Zei. The words are rustic and natural, which pretty reflect life experience and emotions of ancestors. The expression manner and literature skill are similar to the ancient Books of Songs. As so, it was given an elegant name as "Taiwan Guo Fong".
This show is combined with such as four-stringed musical instrument, Daguangxian, and keyboard etc. The exquisite Si-ku-lian verse will be chanted by way of traditional rhyme reading with innovative lyrics and melody, which would sprout the soul of this vocal performance, "creating melody following lyrics" of folk art forms, as seeds and then bloom attractive flowers as a result.
