CHINESE CLASSICAL MUSIC

February 24, 2011

Even though I don’t know much about Chinese classical music, I have always liked it, especially listening to the pipa and er hu. I was listening to some old cds I have and found this gem. It is a Chinese Classical music cd recorded by a pipa player who goes by the name of He ShuFeng.

Why do the Chinese listen to Jay Chou when they have this? Well, that is a rhetorical question since unfortunately the answer is pretty evident : for the exact same reason most Americans would rather listen to Britney Spears raher than Miles Davis… In any case, that is disturbing…

A good site on Chinese music is this one :

Anyways, the name of the song is Great Waves Washes the Sand. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
