Album Brand & Number：International Legacy CD 366
Because it sounds great, is easy to learn, light to carry and inexpensive, the Dizi (Chinese Bamboo Flute) is one of most popular Chinese instruments in Asia.
The Dizi (also called D'Tzu or Zhu Di), is a side blown wind instrument made of Bamboo. The Dizi has a very simple structure: 1 blowhole, 1 membrane hole, 6 finger holes, and two pairs of holes in the end to correct the pitch and hang decorative tassels.
This CD presents a series of traditional Chinese folk songs arranged for Chinese bamboo flutes, accompanied by diverse instruments, both modern and traditional, such as guitar, percussion, and synthesizer, as well as the erhu, a Chinese fiddle. These arrangements update these old Chinese songs. The music is light, lively, and quite charming.
