Chinese Musical Instruments

by Tatsuhiko H.
(Tokyo, Japan)

China has unique musical instruments like any other country. In particular, the erhu (2-string Chinese instrument played with a bow) and Yangqin are very unique instruments in the world.

Do you know the 12 Girls Band? It is a music group of playing classical Chinese instruments like these. They often came to Japan about 10 years ago and moved around because of performance. I had an experience to see the group in my hometown, and I remember clearly.

At present, we can see them on YouTube, so please try to see it. I will introduce you to 2 representative samples of music from the group:

(12 Girls Band: Freedom - 自由)




(12 Girls Band: Miracle - 奇蹟)
