Chen Jiangshan, a 22-year-old migrant worker, became fascinated by the guzheng, a traditional Chinese musical instrument, because of the martial arts novels he read when he was a child. 

Chen's teacher noticed his talent and presented him with a guzheng. 

Chen had to learn to play the guzheng by watching online videos as he worked in different cities with his brother. During the past four years, he has kept practicing at every construction site where he worked and attracted a lot of interest from his co-workers. 

Chen now performs many difficult compositions. Chen Jiangshan said he hoped he could receive professional instruction so that he could have more opportunities and perform on a bigger stage.
