How Han Music Sounded

Unread postby Kongde » Mon Sep 30, 2019 8:30 pm

If you are a music lover and interested in the Three Kingdoms/Han Dynasty time period, prepare to be dazzled. I found this glorious re-enactment of what their music would have really sounded like, with zither and bells and all. For a person curious, it is certainly worth a listen.

If you have any more live performances like this that you would like to share, I would love to hear them! It is great to immerse yourself and pretend as though you are in the times. I have another live video with dancers/entertainers while a flute instrument of a kind is being played. Really great stuff!!!

Glad you liked it, I have another two for you.

First, this one is more modernized, but just listening to it, you can hear the Han musical influence. I, for one, find this music piece to be absolutely brilliant and well played, it truly sounds like what could be modern Han music to me. I highly recommend giving it a fair listen. You won't be disappointed!

The second one contains a zither and flute-type instrument being played with a few dancers coming in later.
