Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dance of the Yi People is one of the most popular solo compositions for the pipa, a four-stringed pear-shaped fretted lute used as one of the primary traditional musical instruments of China. Unlike the martial-sounding Ambushed From All Sides, the other most widely performed solo pipa piece, Dance of the Yi People is predominantly lyrical in character. Dance of the Yi People was composed in the 1960s by the Chinese composer Wang Huiran, presumably based on traditional music of the Yi people of southern China.show more
