Silk Road Music has a very good arrangement of this mongolian-influenced tune, so our ensemble decided to use it as a basis for our own. However, unlike on this recording, we'll be featuring some taiko to simulate a horse's gallop and I'll be playing a shinobue (Japanese transverse flute) in accompaniment to the erhu (Chinese violin). If you're in the Los Angeles area and are free in early November, let me know if you'd be interested in seeing us perform and I'll send you the details!

Got any favorite music from Asia?

Can you help us out?
