A note about Composer Wang Ming-Jer（王明哲）
Wang Ming-Jer was born in 1955 at Pintong Checheng, a small town near HengChun in southern Taiwan, where the southern Taiwanese folk music known as Hengchun-Tiao（恆春調) originated.
Many people are moved by Wang's compositions because of his
expressions of crying out for basic dignity, self-esteem and freedom for the Taiwanese under the martial law of the KMT.
He did not learn from traditional musical theory, but is very sensitive in melody and knows how to present his feelings in music.
His outstanding compositions include “Ocean Country”, “Taiwan Spirit”, “ Taiwan ”, “ Formosa and Forever My Country”.
