As explained earlier, Moyun does not just cover the classics.

One particular dreamlike song features a wonderful blend of tradition and modernity and also comes with a history lesson. Watch below:

The Guzheng is an ancient traditional Chinese zither, which is a form of string instrument. It has seen many forms over its long and interesting history. Some of the first recorded Guzhengs were from the Warring States period between 475 and 221 BCE. However, it did not become popular among Chinese culture until the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BCE).
