A Discovery of Chinese Folk Tunes 中​國​民​謠

by Jeremy Moyer 莫傑明

supported by


Rarely heard traditional folk songs from Taiwan and the south of China played on Coconut Shell Fiddle, Pipa Lute, and a variety of percussion instruments: A Discovery of Chinese Folk Tunes was recorded in Canada in 1997. It features music for the Taiwanese Coconut Shell Fiddle. The music is arranged and performed in a rustic traditional manner preserving the style of Moyer's Taiwanese teacher, Zhang Shi-Dong and an older generation of Chinese folk fiddlers. "The subtlety of the music and the playing requires several listenings before one can adjust to the gentle nature of the sounds, indeed, to the philosophy which breathes life into those sounds. There is a delicacy here which makes our frenetic lifestyles seem almost frivolous..." Harry Currie, The Record.
