Confession: I have no knowledge nor experience of any kind of asian folk music. I’ve listened some J-pop, paid attention of the soundtrack in a random Hollywood movie when the chinese character is first introduced and can name several Beatles songs which have Indian influences.
Unfortunately that doesn’t mean anything.
Sure I made some research about instruments and stuff before making this song, but that only made me realise that I don’t know jack. Because my days on this planet are most likely quite limited, I think I’ll save studying ragas, the secrets of koto and chinese traditional opera for the next life.
Without further ado, northern boy’s attempt to create something oriental: THE TALE OF THE PIG AND TWO SNAKES.
