Kai Proctor presents I Dream of China posted at Kai Proctor, saying, “Walking down the street in the early morning, there is a cool temperature, which is unusual for this time of year. Many people are outside, riding on their motorbikes and doing Tai Chi …”
Athena Goodlight presents Traditional Chinese Bowed Stringed Instruments posted at factoidz, saying, “Melodious, lyrical, melancholic, and joyful– these are the different sounds that are produced by the traditional Chinese bowed stringed instruments. Here they are.”
Athena Goodlight presents The Plucked Traditional Chinese Musical Instruments posted at factoidz, saying, “Among the most ancient musical instruments of China are the plucked strings. Aside from becoming essential parts of the ensemble in the regional operas, these instruments have become favorites for solo performances, too. Today, they are still being used in the theater, studied in music schools and are continually evolving both in the physical form and the techniques by which they are being played.”
