Rippling and Dreamy
Guzheng, as one of the most representative Chinese
instruments, first appeared around the Warring States period
(475 - 221 BC), then became extremely popular during the
Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 AD) and spread to all neighboring
areas ever since (e.g., Guzheng is the forefather of Japanese
Koto). Guzheng was originally a rather simple instrument with
only five strings. After all the years of evolution, today's
Guzheng has twenty-one strings and is still widely used in all
kinds of Chinese music.
Guzheng has a unique, rippling sound character. The playing
techniques developed for Guzheng are also unique and distinct,
therefore set it apart from any other members in the world's zither
