Labels : Quin
While in Sweden I went to a few concerts, including one where two young Chinese women played “qin” (a seven-stringed zither, this particular one some 700 years old), “xiao” (end-blown flute) and “xun” (ocarina).
I would be pleased to know if some of you reading this may have any good knowledge, especially, of the “qin”, a very traditional instrument played since some two (or more) thousand years. For me, this was definitely the first time I went to a concert of this kind of music, but it was quite fascinating as the music and the instrument(s) were explained by a Swedish professor, specialised in Chinese language and culture. I could not avoid going shopping for a CD with “qin” music.
