Chinese Folk Songs CD

Miss LUI HUNG is a noted Cantonese singer, with many recordings to her credit. She is the daughter of Lui Man-Sing, one of the foremost Chinese musicians of the 20th century, and was regarded as a "child of wisdom" as a 10-year old. She distinguished herself in classical Cantonese songs as well as modern Cantonese and Mandarin songs. She is equally expert in playing Chinese music, acting in Chinese opera, and dancing in Chinese classical and folk dances. Miss Lui has toured the United States, Canada and South-East Asia many times, and was been praised as the "Song Bird of South China" in the American Press. These ten ancient folk songs are performed beautifully by her and her accompanists on cheng, san-sen, nan-hu, pipa, yang-chin, dar-gue, song-sing, and ding-ling, among other instruments.
