He devoted himself to this passion by learning to write, produce, engineer, and distribute his music.

TAIWANESE NIGHT MARKET ART DISPLAY

Artist: Hsiu-Fang, Photo by TAAMN // Taiwanese night markets (Chinese: 夜市; pinyin: yèshì) are street markets in Taiwan that operate in urban or suburban areas between sunset and sunrise. Most night markets occupy either sidewalks or even entire streets that carry vehicle and pedestrian traffic by day. These markets operate daily and feature a mixture of individual stalls selling clothing, consumer goods, xiaochi (similar to snacks or fast food), and specialty drinks. The atmosphere is usually crowded and noisy with hawkers shouting and fast-paced music playing over loudspeakers. Taiwanese night markets have evolved over the years from small local gatherings to noisy streets lined with vendors. DID YOU KNOW? There are over 700 night markets in Taiwan! Taiwan is about 1/6 the size of Minnesota.
