Liang Xiao, native of Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region

Liang likes pairing his outfit with a hat or spectacles to complete an artsy look.

Unlike those who pin their living on street performing, Liang Xiao owns a wedding planning company, which enables him to enjoy the hard work even if it means hours of performance only earn him some 20 yuan.

Liang chose to hide his night role as a street performer from his family, who, according to him, didn't believe he could live upon music and therefore had tried to talk him out of it since he was little.

Liang has distinguished himself with folklore performances.
