The Year of the Dog Traditional Chinese Music Music By Various Artists
Compiled by Indian director Deben Battacharya, the traditional sounds of Year of the Dog welcome us into the rich cultural heritage of China. Between 1983 and 1984, Battacharya traveled through China looking for authentic ritual music, born 3000 years ago with the Emperors of the great dynasties. The results of this quest are exceptional recordings of the highest quality. Ranging from instrumental music to opera, from lyrical tales with musical accompaniment to traditional music of national minorities, to the Ouigours along the Silk Road, these unique works are the reflection of an exceptionally creative and vibrant music.
