Asian 1/15

Asian music is subdivided into regionally coined musical trends and conceptual arrangements. Chinese music relates on the one hand to the Han Chinese, on the other to various ethnic minorities in the People’s Republic of China. Outside the mainland, people from Chinese origin also produce Chinese music with traditional Chinese instruments or in Chinese language.

From Chinese documents dating to the early periods of Chinese civilization, there are indications of a well developed music culture already in existence during the Zhou dynasty (256 B.C. – 1122 B.C.). Part of the present Chinese cultural scene is based thereon. Traditional Chinese music is quite popular. Annual events such as the Midi Modern Music Festival in Peking attract tens of thousands of attendees. There was also the Snow Mountain Music Festival (Chinese version of Woodstock) back in 2002 in Yunnan province.

The Japanese word for music is ongaku, which combines the Kanji words “on” (=sound) and “gaku” (=to enjoy). There are several forms of traditional Japanese music. There is Shomyo , or rather Buddhist hymns, and Gagaku, or rather orchestral court music from the Nara and Heian periods. Gagaku is a type of classical music that was performed at the imperial court. Kagura-uta, Azuma-asobi and Yamato-uta are endemic repertoire. Togaku and komagaku come from the Chinese Tang dynasty and spreads over the Korean peninsula to Japan. Furthermore, it subdivides into gagaku ensembles (instrumental music) and bugaku (a dance accompanied by gagaku).

This smooth and soft world-fusion track uses the traditional Indian instrument Sarangi, which is a bit like a violin (although it predates the violin in existence). The traditional role of this instrument is to play in unison with the vocalist, but here the Saranghi has come into its own right, mixed with a downtempo electronica beat, tabla, tamborines and soft pads. A silky smooth, exotic and beautiful world ethnic track, highly suitable for travel, journeys, holidays and vacations in exotic and far-away places. Slightly wistful or sorrowful, but also comforting and hopeful.

Whimsical...Tender orchestral China-inspired Playful Fantasy bridging West and East led by the two-stringed Chinese violin - the Erhu... proceeds playfully through beautiful and heartfelt images upon a dynamic bed of ambient and orchestral percussion supporting the happy and joyful mood
