Chinese instrumental music. Exotic and sweet, very similar to traditional American folk music - simple and sweet, but with an Oriental flavor. Pleasing and easily digested, terrific background music for love stories set in the Orient or exotic locales, the beaches of Vietnam, etc. Instrumental, Chinese, Chinese Folk Ensembles
Bell gong and chants from Buddhist temple in Taiwan. Powerful clock chiming, like the tower of Big Ben, over the ticking of a loud second hand, combined with the chanting of monks. Atmospheric and bizarre, ideal for grabbing the attention of audiences in high drama scenes. Male Vocals, Chinese, Buddhist Temple
