Brief introduction of Pipa: The music instrument Pipa (over 2000 years history) has been recognized as Intangible cultural heritage (ICH) which is promoted by UNESCO as a counterpart to the World Heritage that focuses mainly on tangible aspects of culture. These cultural vehicles are called “Human Treasures” by the UN.
