Gao Mingjing, a ‘chicken killer’ from Linshu County, Shangdong has become famous for her mastery of a variety of instruments, including the saxophone, hulusi, flute, erhu and more.
Mingjing sells chicken for living and plays music everyday. Gao attributes her musical talent to her father, a suona player who performed at weddings and funerals. Gao first fell in love with the suona when she was ten.
Gao’s talent is especially amazing considering she did not attend school and is illiterate. She diligently learns how to play musical instruments on her own. She can reportedly play almost any piece of music after listening to it only 4-5 times.
We suppose the chickens aren’t quite as thrilled with Gao’s music. Escapees likely have traumatic flashbacks every time they hear a suona.
Gao often performs for her neighbors, who buy chicken from her.
