Music Monday: Chinese “èrhú” concert: Live at the Golden Hall of Vienna

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!
