The Old World comes to life when listening to this album, World-Chinese. It is filled with authentic Asian musical instruments like erhu, guzheng and dizi and percussion like bangzi, dagu, cymbals, bells and gongs, and it is composed in a way that feels both ancient and modern. But that is the essence of traditional Chinese music-- it is timeless. It links the two worlds together- the past and the present-and serves as a line of continuity in modern day China. Streaming shows, documentaries, docuseries and travel programs located in the Far East will be able to incorporate every track from this collection into their programming quite easily.
