Guqin Music "The Pure Sound of Mountain and Water" Shuishan Yu 2009

"The guqin is a plucked seven-string Chinese musical instrument. It has been played since ancient times, and has traditionally been favoured by scholars and literati as an instrument of great subtlety and refinement, as highlighted by the quote 'a gentleman does not part with his qin or se without good reason,' as well as being associated with the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius. It is sometimes referred to by the Chinese as 'the father of Chinese music' or 'the instrument of the sages'. "

yippee!
Richard from Rocky Hill 10:48:26 AM
@ good mental (host) And, oh my! I see that Melody Yan's Asian zither fusion music includes versions of the folk/hymn "Wayfaring Stranger," "El Condor Pasa" by Peruvian composer Daniel Alomía Robles (and popularized by Simon & Garfunkel) AND "Voodoo Chile" by Jimi Hendrix! From some quick sampling on Amazon, her versions are very good indeed. How would I get tuned into and turned on to new music without WPRB and shows like this? Thanks!
good mental (host) 10:50:28 AM
i had a lot of fun looking into her music! i'm always discovering new things when i put these shows together
