China Roots, a new feature on China Radio International, is an introduction to China's rich traditional musical culture. We hope to introduce listeners to the ROOTS of Chinese musical culture, as well as giving you a ROUTE into that culture. Over the next weeks and months, we'll be looking at music of China's main Han ethnic group, as well as traditions of China's varied ethnic minorities. We'll also be looking at instrumental traditions such as the Guqin, Erhu, Pipa and Guzheng, as well as folk opera and narrative song traditions. Join us on China Roots every Saturday on China Radio International.
