From the recording Starry Starry- Celestial Music from the Heart
Jasmine Nights: 2
(18th century Chinese)
The hammered dulcimer was introduced to China from the west and thus earned the name “zither from the West” or yang qin. It is a standard folk and classical instrument and is factory made in both Mainland China and Taiwan. This version of the melody of Mo Li Hua came from Kim Murley’s book Purple Bamboo. Kim is an American who studied yang qin in a music conservatory in China.
