A Musical Hint.

I listen to an awful lot of Chinese traditional music, and I’ve found that the vast majority of it is tranquil and reflective.  It sits very well with images of still water, statuesque mountains, pouting goldfish and pretty-as-peaches peach blossom.

And since a nation’s traditional music must give some telling clues as to a nation’s traditional characteristics, it blows quite a hole in the stereotypical western view of China.
