Here we present the glorious music of China, including traditional Folk, Opera and Dramatic, as well as contemporary music genres including Pop, Electronica, Hip Hop, Dance, R&B, Rock and more. The music of China dates back to the dawn of Chinese civilization with documents and artifacts providing evidence of a well-developed musical culture as early as the Zhou Dynasty (1122 BC – 256 BC). The legendary founder of music in Chinese mythology was Ling Lun, who made bamboo pipes tuned to the sounds of birds.
Today, the music continues a rich traditional heritage in one aspect, while emerging into a more contemporary form at the same time. You will hear the ethnic roots throughout the music here, even for the most contemporary of tracks.
