Taiwan video of ‘Bad Guy’ played with suona goes viral

TAIPEI (The China Post) — A video featuring Taiwan influencer Mr. Sona using a traditional instrument to play “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish went viral online recently.

The double reeded-horn is an important instrument in the folk music of Taiwan where it has long been used for festivals and religious purposes.

Mr. Sona, whose name sounds like the Chinese name of the traditional instrument called suona (嗩吶), is known for his hypnotical version of “Despacito” in 2017.

The influencer also played Japan’s hot song “Lemon” using suona before, helping him gaining millions of subscribers on Tik Tok, a popular social media video app.
