Cultural Context

The Grasshopper Teases the Rooster is one of the most representative and descriptive folk songs from the southern region of Taiwan. With a brisk melody and engaging lyrics, it paints an intriguing picture of an eloquent young lady (the grasshopper) sarcastically responding wisely to a flirty old man (the rooster), demonstrating a simple and sincere way of life of our ancestors.
