1. Bamboo Language

Hu Yu lin - Composer

Wen Lei - Zhudi (Chinese Flute)
Pakorn Kalapakornchai - Piano


Music is one of the beautiful languages to express our story of life. Historically, the Chinese bamboo flute is an ancient musical instrument that has precipitated the aesthetic essence of Chinese culture for several thousand years. Its sound is clear and bright, mellow, and rich in expressive force, and it strongly inherits ethnic and custom. The zhudi, or dizi, is a bamboo flute in Chinese traditional music. One of the defining characteristics of the instrument is the use of dimo – a thin membrane covering one of the holes. This membrane vibrates when the flute is played, giving the di a piercing and extremely bright tone color. The dimo can be replaced with plastic or fabric tape, which significantly dulls and darkens the color tone.

For this recital, Mr.Wenlei, a Zhudi player, is interested in the beautiful music "Bamboo Language." The music was composed by Hu Yu Lin in 2008 based on Chinese traditional music, which was divided into four variations: loose, slow, medium, and fast. This music was inspired by North-Western musical elements, originally from a song for singing. The music writing consisted of advanced techniques and high skills for Zhudi players, such as finger-snapping, broken spitting with mouth, and throat techniques to express the meaning of the Bamboo language.

2. Hongyan

(The Geese in the Sky)

Liao Weiyi - Vocal

Wen Lei - Zhudi (Chinese Flute)

Hongyan, or the given name the Geese in the sky, is a Mongolian folk song usually performed on stage. The song's meaning describes the vibe between the autumn and winter seasons when geese are flying to the south, time flies, and the past passes. The melody shows the perception of life by cherishing the beauty of today. This song was written by Lv Yanwei and musically composed by Erna Band. For the first MUPA Recital, the song Hongyan will be performed by Liao Weiyi in the Chinese folk singing style and accompanied by the Zhudi, a traditional Chinese musical instrument by Wen Lei.

Dunhuang music, with high historical, artistic, and cultural value, is essential to ancient Chinese music culture. As the intersection of China's old Silk Road, Dunhuang's unique geographical location and historical background gave birth to this special charm of music. Dunhuang music has absorbed the influence of Han music, Western music, India, Persia, and other cultures to form its unique musical art style.

Also, it integrates the cultural heritage and profound spiritual connotation of the contemporary Chinese nation. The music has a graceful melody and a magnificent and passionate movement, presenting the unique style of the ancient Chinese Silk Road and reflecting the majestic atmosphere of Chinese national music.
