Some Interesting Stuff

Some interesting media clips:

1) Some dude came into my shop the other day with this minority Erhuesque instrument:

According to my collegue, we used to sell these a long long time ago. Out of the 20 pieces we ordered, we condemned 10 of them.


2) Check this out: http://www.gandharva.at/

Soothing Zen music from an Austria instrumental group comprising of the harp, cello and the Erhu!


3) Finally, this lady made a youtube video with an Ebony Erhu bought from my online shop. She picked up the instrument on her own.

  1. I think this is a 大广弦 (daguangxian), which is a Min Nan instrument, also used by Hakka.

    It's also called datongxian (大筒弦), guangxian (广弦), or daguanxian (大管弦).
