In honor of Chinese New Year and ringing in the “Year of the Sheep”, this week’s Music Monday selection features the instrument most evocative of China: the èrhú. The èrhú is a two-stringed fiddle that has been a staple in Chinese folk music since the 10th Century.
One of the best parts about living in China is going for a stroll in a Chinese park and hearing an èrhú live. This video isn’t quite the same, but pretty darn close. Enjoy!
