Traditional Guzheng Music

I have always been fascinated by classical oriental art. Especially of Imperial China, particularly the Tang Dynasty which marked the golden age of Chinese art.

I also love the music of that period. My most favorite classical Chinese musical instrument is the guzheng, a plucked string instrument belonging to the zither family. If there's a word that can describe the sound it makes, for me it would be "serene".

The album below is a collection of recordings by various guzheng masters. Hit the play button and find out how serenity sounds like. ;-)
