Two students from Kunshan University have set up a promotional storefront for their
company, Wood Song, in the Tua-Bak-Kang Cultural Park in Tainan’s Sinhua District (新化), which offers their original African-inspired musical instruments and lessons.
Chen Chih-hsuan (陳志軒) and Wang Cheng-hao (王承皓), both visual communication design students, said they founded the musical instrument business together to sell their wind-and-string inventions, which are inspired by traditional African instruments and made with Taiwanese woods.
