Listen to this beautiful showcase of classical Chinese instruments by the China National Orchestra. They welcomed Katy Perry on a visit to China earlier this year by performing her Top 40 hit "Roar." It's incredible! Katy Perry was moved to tears, and I can definitely see why! China has a rich musical tradition that spans thousands of years. Musical instruments were traditionally classified into 8 categories known as bayin (八音). The eight categories are: 1) Silk (string) 2) Bamboo (woodwind) 3) Wood 4) Stone 5) Metal 6) Clay 7) Gourd 8) Hide There are other instruments which may not fit these classifications. This classification of instruments was one of the first musical classifications ever. Anyone know how to play any of these instruments? =)
