The folk song "Xijing Diao" comes from the album "Chinese Music Map: Listening to the Collection of Chinese Music Guzheng Music, Su Chang"

Xijing Tune

Folk music adaptation: Zhou Yanjia Ethnic group: Han region: Shaanxi

Guzheng: Su Chang

Erhu: Wang Zitong

It is said that this is an ancient tune left over from the late Western Zhou Dynasty in Haojing, conveying the emotions towards the loss of power of King You at that time.

The flowing guzheng poured out, like a fallen high platform after the end of the sword, the once dazzling lights dimmed, the ancient city's grains and millets separated, the golden spear resounded and the chariots and horses rolled, and after mourning and lamenting, the faint erhu sounded like a lonely shadow, like a hanging instrument, the sound of the zheng rustled, like autumn reeds, like withered springs, like the low cries of the throat. The two gradually merged into one place, as if one hand had touched the city wall, touched the remnants of the past, and shared a cavity of memories and emotional history.
