Celestial Melody — Pipa Bookmark
For thousands of years, the plucked pipa has reigned as the “king” of Chinese folk instruments. Also known as the Chinese lute, the pipa embodies many key features of traditional Chinese belief. Its length (3.5 chi) represents heaven, earth, man, and the five elements. Further, the four strings represent the four seasons.
By itself, the pipa expresses a vast array of emotions and colors – from the elegant footsteps of young maidens to the perils of war. The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra features pipa in tandem with classical orchestra – an utterly unique sound.
