Singing, piano: Wei Haiyang

Tianqin seems to be played by the hand of God, the melody is free and gentle, pleasant to listen to, and the song is long and soft, making people intoxicated in the warmth of their hometown. Breeze blowing across the earth, such as the flame of gorgeous kapok bloom in the branches, grandma said, kapok open, winter no longer come, the day will be prosperous. The kapok tree is tall and straight, and people also call it "hero tree"; Kapok is big and heavy and falls easily from the trees, while the fallen flowers are still colorful, as if they want to burn their whole life. The graceful glissando sometimes appears, embellishing the music with dexterity and moving, and the gentle song quietly tells you to cherish the happy life, cherish the fleeting beauty, and cherish the people around you.
