Music Repair

Music Repair, originally uploaded by anthonli.

Most musicians for the 7th month performances, especially the more traditional sort are old, like this old man repairing his San-Sen (3-strings) here (while the performance is going on!), as this trade is slowly dying out.

Some performances have to resort to using taped music due to shortage of musicians.
