Hakka folk song is the oral literature of the Hakkas, rich with Hakka dialect and idyllic characteristics. It has become an independent branch of folk singing in China.

The Hakka folk song in Meizhou is mainly expressed by using traditional techniques as well as puns, overlapping and other techniques. It is basically in a "seven-character and four-sentence" style. The first, second and fourth sentences of each folk song rhyme. Singers can make up their songs according to practical situations and express their feelings through different tones.

There are more than 100 tones, including high, long, stable and fluent. In all Hakka folk songs, love songs account for a great portion.
