Shen Wei Shan began playing the Chinese violin on the streets of Melbourne six years ago to raise money for his sick brother.

He made $20,000, but his brother died of his illnesses.

Now the 82-year-old busker plays his music in memory of his brother, and to entertain passers-by on the ground floor of Melbourne Central and on Russell Street in Chinatown.

D*scribe’s Zhixian Lyu spoke to him and the people who enjoy his music.
