Kulangsu: Hometown of Music
By Chen Ran | Web Exclusive

The very name Kulangsu is musical. In the South Fujian local dialect, it melds three characters: ku meaning drumbeat, lang or the tide, and su, which means island. The name comes from the sound made by the tidal waves as they hammer a giant rock on the island's southwestern coast, making a sound like the gong of drums.
