Street Ukeleles (You ke li li jietou yiren 尤克里里街头艺人)

These two licensed street artists provide some of the street-music atmosphere for which Kulangsu Island was once famous. Two colorful men hang out near the Marine Garden Hotel, on opposite sides of the dramatic typhoon-struck tree, playing and selling cheap ukeleles.

Music includes a variety of Chinese folk songs, plus frequent renditions of “Gulangyu Zhi Bo,” the pop song that has become an informal anthem for Kulangsu. One of the two ukelele men stands to the right of the Marine Garden Hotel, and the other stands on the street corner across from Moon Shrimp Pie.

Address:  Near 27 Tianwei Road, x Gulangyu Island, Siming District, Xiamen City, China
