Traditional Chinese Music

The erhu is a stringed instrument from China, that makes a beautiful sound, which often sounds sad to me. It is played in a similar manner as the cello. I’m still trying to figure out how the small round piece at the bottom can make such a beautiful sound. The song is a beautiful instrumental, highlighting the erhu.

Have a great rest of the weekend!

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

Images of Africa

I love this video for a number of reasons. First there are the images of the people, that are happy and smiling. Joy and smiling in any culture are wonderful! They seemed to be filled with such a love of life. There is also beautiful nature photography. I also love the music of Samite, a musician from Uganda. I am mainly familiar with his flute playing, but there is a wonderful blend of instruments, and vocals here. All of this and the cultural element of the video, truly make it wonderful. I hope you enjoy it! Maybe I should have been an anthropologist.

I also want to share a quote with you: “I write to discover what I know.” Flannery O’Connor

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
