Heritage Pipa Music–Inspiration of Natural Mood

We noticed that too much electronics music may has the same effect as electronics games to kids, it should be influenced by natural music also, to learn to balance when they grow up.

The UNESCO Heritage Pipa Music is one of the kind of music can delivery the inspiration of natural mood by a natural pattern of music with a unique vibration of strings!  A singing wood and stone! (Pipa, Gu Zheng,Qing……)

It is said in Chinese that the word for music, yue (), is composed of the characters si for silk () and mu for wood (), and that it is a representation of the instrument and a feeling by touching a natural mood. For the same character, it is also mean the happiness. Natural music will touch everyone with the mood of happiness!
