A handyman is becoming popular, not for his ability to fix things, but to play 24 different musical instruments on stage, Hebei Youth Daily reported.
Wang Xinglin, 59, recently demonstrated his skill by playing 24 instruments including the Chinese clarinet, electronic organ, the drum and gong at a folk art festival in Handan, Hebei Province, for hundreds of spectators.
He started to play at 7 and in 2002, he started to reveal his talent using a homemade shelf that can hold all the instruments.
Now, he can play various types of music. He hopes to show off his skill on Starlight Broadway's, a CCTV program featuring ordinary people.
