Programme Notes

    This composition is based on the music of the She people, a Chinese ethnic minority group from Shanha tribe. They are known to be nomadic farmers from the southern regions of China, and have overcome much hardship, eventually migrating to the vast rolling hills of Fujian and Zhejiang provinces, where they still live today. The music is both lively and cheerful, depicting the She's courage, optimism, and a life of happiness.
