Four Chinese (Volume III)
Xiao Xuan, Yang Yufei, Yang Jing, Lei Jianjun
Subject：Language, Culture & Arts
This book introduces four Chinese folk music artists that have dealt with modern musician Su Yang; they are respectively specialized in singing Hua’er (a kind of folk song popular in northwest China), story-telling (popular in Northern Shaanxi), singing Qin opera and playing shadow puppetry. The author especially cares about their talent, music skills and fate in the context of social transition. By following the footsteps of these four artists that live by the side of the Yellow River, this book attempts to find the evidence that the contemporary art intersects with the traditional art, just like the confluence of rivers, and trace the sources of Chinese music art and its vibrant branches.more >
