Composer and Lyricist: Su Yi Shu

Additional music: Marc Schmitz

Su Yi Shu is a musicologist who went to the Zhuangzu and Miaozu tribe mountain country in south China and heard folk songs which he later recreated.  This piece consists of four folk songs:

A) Clouds leaning in the sky

B) Our Zhuangzu countryside is a sea of songs

C) A lover's song saying "We would rather die than separate."

D) The town of Long Zhou's star anise fragrance floats across China. 

One can hear african influences in the beginning and the jazz passages have a Miles Davis "In A Slent Way" feel...
