You can see some musicians smirking at the joke they are about to play on the laowai audience. The orchestra is known for its traditional Chinese music. And then...

I hadn't seen this before and thought I would pass it along. :)
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

Funny - I started playing middle eastern music on the erhu.
I thought it was great.

Yeah, that sounds like a perfect match. The erhu's intonation is user-controlled, as on a violin or a trombone, not constrained by frets as on a pipa or guitar. So weird Mideastern partial intervals play okey-doke.

I like the surprise factor in music. I am currently working on playing Beethoven on the ukulele. Shaka, brudda Ludwig.
