PinXi Liu 六 品析, age 8, amazing rock guitarist

Born in TianMen, near ZhangJiaJie (think of the movie Avatar), HuBei province, she became interested in the guitar and started lessons at age six, with a penchant for heavy metal !

PinXi made her public debut in October 2015, at the China (ShangHai) Musical Instruments Exhibition, invited by the JOYO company as a guest performer; this is the first clip seen here - playing Cross-Ozielzinho.

This montage also includes 'Angel of Darkness' by Andy James (age 9; PinXi, not Andy ;).

Don't miss it ...

Her favorite quote : Believe in yourself.

[video v=RgkfvVxPVa0 start=25]

PinXi exhibits that no-hesitation / no force expression strived for in the finest calligraphy, in which the hand and brush are as one. In Chinese this is known as Wu Wei or Wu Wei Wu - loosely translatable as action without effort.

The beauty of the historical DaMing Palace 大明宫

The DaMing Palace (DaMing Gong, Palace of Great Brilliance) was the imperial palace complex of the Tang Dynasty, located in its capital Chang'An. It served as the royal residence of the Tang emperors for more than 220 years. Today, the DaMing Palace site is designated a National Heritage Site of China, located a little north east of present-day Xi'An city center, ShaanXi province, central China. One can take subway line 2 to DaMingGongXi (DaMing Palace West) station. The palace complex was destroyed at the end of the Tang dynasty. The ruins were only discovered in the 1950s and some parts have now been reconstructed following careful archaeological analysis of the site. The reconstructions, museum and grounds opened to visitors in 2010. A beautiful film ...

G.E.M. 邓紫棋

A selection of songs from HuNan TV's 'I am a singer' by Gem Tang ... G.E.M. was born in Shanghai but grew up in Hong Kong from age 4. She is fluent in Mandarin (mainland China), Cantonese (Hong kong and GuangDong) and English. Here is the musical phenomenon, the incredibly wonderous Gem Tang ... Falling (original by Alicia Keys) ... 'If I were a boy' 《挑战碧昂丝》 (original by Beyonce) ... Something goes wrong with the mike or mix just before 45 seconds (lower volume), which must be pretty off-putting, but still the emotion and performance win through, despite a few duff notes (an effort for mix error compensation I would think). These things happen in live shows, and generally HuNnan TV does really good output. Listen to song two for a better measure of voice talent (not to mention piano skills). The mix is a bit off in other ways too, but still, a great turn and a song with an important message, for boy or girl - don't let 'the one' slip away ... 存在 ... Beyond《喜欢你》 ... We will rock you / We are the champions (original by Queen) ... Imagine (original by John Lennon) ...

Spring Festival Chinese Opera party 春节戏曲晚会, 2016

Hiking the Great Wall 长城 of China in the snow

A great film of the Great Wall north of Beijing, including 'wild wall', accompanied by great music (踏古 (Ta Gu) by Lin Hai, 'Walking into Ancientry', with Chinese lute (pipa)). We [mum, dad - videographer - and son and daughter, from Singapore] hiked 3 sections of the Great Wall in winter, without any guides after studying blogs and posts by fellow hikers. All these sections are different. From the unrestored GuBeiKou Great Wall where we were the only people around, to the wonderful JinShanLing, where the climb is steep and every direction gives you good photo opportunities, to the restored MuTianYu where we hiked in heavy snowfall. We stayed at local farmhouses on both nights, dined with the locals and hitched rides to nearby bath-houses. Temperature ranged from -5 deg C (day) to -12 deg C (night). Winter daybreak is at 7am and the sky becomes dark by 5pm so one has only 10 hours of daylight, so plan your travelling and hiking schedules carefully. This once-in-a-lifetime experience was captured on video and we would like to share it with you. The feelings just can't be described - you need to experience it first hand. A wonderful animation combining traditional Chinese painting and dance - don't miss it ! 踏古-林海 作曲:林海 视频作者:中国传媒大学动画学院

Even more songs from the Voice of China

Starting with 'Listen', 'Feeling Good', 'At Last' and 'Something's got a hold on me'. Plus 'Price tag', 'Time to say goodbye', '(Does that make me) Crazy', 'She's gone' and 'What a wonderful world', plus some classic Chinese songs. Not to be missed ... "It wasn't because I didn't know that much ... It was just I knew TOO much ... Does that make me crazy ... ??"

New Year's Eve music concert, 2016

An excerpt from HuNan TV's New Year 2016 concert. Starting with a beautiful, haunting song, in English; Adele Atkins / Jim Lee. "The two of us, we're running out of time ..."

(HuNan is a province in central China.) Enjoy our half hour extract from the four and a half hours New Year gala. Three great vocalists, six great performances. From ballad to techno to duet to 70s anthem to dance - it's BeijingBuzzz for sure. Just remember - cherish every mistake as a chance to grow; that every problem requires only clear sight - become free of all attachments (beliefs) and see What Really Is ... (that might not sound much, but it is all you need to know). 'Bon voyage' to all our visitors - love life; live it now, with no delay (it's shorter than you think). Though nothing need last forever, it all should be 100% true and with love ...

This girl is on fire ! (music videos)

Sometimes in browsing the web disparate things just seem to come together, as here. Two different popular singing shows, one an established artist, one a teen on a first audition; one common theme - 'this girl is on fire'. In the first video, from 'I am a singer', I was so struck by the gusto of the performance. The cut-aways are to the other competitors; one can feel that the knives were out (in some cases) but she said 'take that', and nailed it ... The song is hard to translate but means something like : I want to be the real me (not one with a smile who is sad inside). Second is a lovely teen wearing a chili pepper (which is a big plus in my book); it's a bit rough in places but she hits the key lines great. Momo Wu (we love you too) watch out ;) What I love about the 'Voice of China' is that it has real humanity - judges with true music passion and pure hearts, plus a sense of hummor ... 鄧紫棋 G.E.M.

A selection of traditional Chinese music and song ...

The first film is from the CCTV Spring Festival Gala 2013, with singer Na Ying. The song : [Because of You, My Life is] A Warm Spring With Blooming Flowers. In 2015, the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) runs from the 19th to the 25th February. The second is from China's National Games Opening Ceremony in 2009. The song is Like A Dream. The third film features the music 'Legend of Chinese Mountains' and is about the five sacred mountains of China and the Chinese love of nature and balance with nature. Fourth is 'Your Collar', a romantic song from the imperial music of the Han Dynasty. Fifth song is 'A Nation of Greatness and Courtesy' and is about the Chinese character of virtue and friendship. Greatness in Chinese thinking is virtue; all three core Chinese philosophies - Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism - stress that strength and happiness (well-being) lies in balance, not power (dominance). The last film features music from a documentary about the DaMing Palace (DaMing Gong) of the Tang Dynasty, at the heart of the dynasty's capital Chang'An (which means 'eternal peace'). The palace area is a little north east of the city of Xi'An in ShaanXi province.

The Mid-autumn Festival Gala, 2014

With CCTV ...

Now you're in Beijing 北京 ...

Starting with 'Now you're in Beijing (commie jungle mix)', music video. Plus Beijing's popular attractions, a trip to the blue sky city, QianHai Lake (in central Beijing), the BeiJing to ShangHai sleeper train, and The Forbidden City (documentary; in English) bonus films ... 'Now you're in Beijing ...' - think about it - you're in Beijing, China - it might be different but that is here and not there; sure some things could be better - such as rights and protections for migrant workers, but Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say. A few words on the Hu JinTao / Wen JiaBao era - definately one of China's most successful jumps forward; a major rise in prosperity for all, the growth of great infrastructure, such as the high-speed rail system, and much more, the Beijing Olympics, the Shanghai World Expo, space exploration, and the list goes on ... A happy retirement to two leaders who helped guide China back to greatness ! Mao ZeDong unified the country and helped defeat the Japanese invaders, and for that is a national hero. But things didn't go so well subsequently and on his death the 'Gang of Four' were arrested and China took a new path, though slowly at first following the courageous efforts of Deng XiaoPing. But it was not until circa 1990 that China really began to take off. So its rise to greatness, once more, is remarkable for having been achieved, from so little, in just 25 years. Obviously, they have done most things very right.

Two beautiful songs from Inner Mongolia

The Song : Mother in my dream (梦中的额吉) Hear once, never forget ... Songs from the north China grasslands and big sky nature haven Uudam is a 13 year old singer from Inner Mongolia. He reached the final of "China's Got Talent" in 2011. This traditional Mongolian folk song is dedicated to his mother whom he lost at 8 (he also lost his father when 10). Do not pick such pretty flower she does not want to leave her motherland Dear mom you hold my hand whisper about it's secret wishes You are so far away, my mom but you hold my hand in my dream Blowing wind and sand covered my eyes yet I want to hear from my mom Where are you? My dear mom Wish you would kiss me softly You are so far away, my mom but you kiss my cheek in my dream. You want me as brave as an eagle in the sky You make me strong like flowers in the wind When I march forward with my head high I know that you accompany at my side My dear mom in distance You hold me tight in my dream. The Song : My Three Precious (吉祥三宝) The composer and lyric writer is Bu Ren Ba Ya Er, who is a song writer, singer and an Inner Mongolian TV commentator. He composed the song as a birthday gift to his three-year old daughter. His daughter learned the ballad very quickly and the family began to sing it on various occasions. The inspiration came from his daughter’s fascination about life and nature - she would always ask many questions. It is a celebration of happy family life. This TV appearance is around ten years after the song first became a huge hit in China. Daughter: Papa Dad: Yeah Daughter: Does the moon go home after the sun’s rising? Dad: Oh, yep Daughter: Then where is the sun after stars’ appearing? Dad: Oh, in the sky Daughter: But why can’t I find them? Dad: Oh, they’ve all gone home Chorus:The sun, the star and the moon, what a happy family they three are! Daughter:Mama Mum: Yeah Daughter: When will the flowers bloom since the leaves are green? Mum: Oh, in summer Daughter: Can we pick the fruits since the flowers are red? Mum: Oh, in autumn Daughter: Will the seeds bud when they are planted? Mum: Oh, they will grow Chorus:The flower, the leaf and the fruit, what a happy family they three are! Dad & Mum:Honey Daughter: Yep Dad & Mum:Papa is like the sun shining on Mama Daughter: How about Mama Dad & Mum:Mama is like the leaves holding up the flowers Daughter: Then me Dad & Mum:You are just like the budding seed Daughter: Oh, yep Chorus: What a happy family we three are!
