3,000 Year Old Partying Instrument


Kong Audio have releasedChinee Sheng - The Mouth Organ of Concord which they describe as a 3,000 year old partying instrument. Here's all the details from them...
As one of the earliest and most commonly recognized Chinese instruments, Sheng, a free-reed, mouth-blown instrument, which can be traced back to at least 3,000 years ago, has withstood against time and still is a vital key piece in today's Chinese music. Sheng is also said to have inspired the creation of Accordion and Harmonica.
Sheng is extremely versatile and expressive in its own right, with a wide note range, as well as much the broad tonal textures, as demonstrated in our official audio demo.
Due to its portability and the polyphony nature, Sheng is also one of the few common accompanying instruments in Chinese music. It's a must-have piece for scoring a more comprehensive Chinese-themed music.
A special note on the recording musician: He Yuan, who is a distinguished performer, composer, professor, and also an active member of the classical Chinese music community. He has won many provincial and national awards in various categories, and He has toured overseas many times. With the help of He, the nuances and intrinsic delicacies are faithfully captured.
