Description

The Rough Guide to the Music of China, like China itself, is hugely diverse and enthralling. Explore the sounds of over a billion people - from the ancient tones of the erhu and pipa and the Inner Mongolian folk revival to original Shanghai jazz, Chinese Pop and the latest underground beats.

Today China is set to become the world's largest economy, probably within the next five to ten years. Despite position of power most in the West know little about China and its people. The Rough Guide to the Music of China offers an insight into the ancient, modern and contemporary history of China, and perhaps even a glimpse to the future. Instruments such as the erhu, pipa and guzheng can be dated back some 3,000 years, and were introduced to China via the Silk Road trading routes from ancient Persia. 'Yangguan Pass Melody – Three Variations' by Min Huiffen is a well-known work for erhu.

Do not miss this extensive Rough Guide complete with a full-length bonus album of World Music Networks' acclaimed release, Introducing Hanggai. This hugely popular album is now out of print, so this is the only opportunity to buy an exclusive re-issue of the album.
