The Single-stringed Instrument
September 22,2017 By:CRI Online
Jing is the only marine ethnic minority in China. People of Jing ethnic minority live on three islands to the south of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, facing Vietnam across the sea. The single-stringed instrument, also called one-stringed instrument, is an ancient instrument invented by Jing people. It originated in China and was also popular in Southeast Asian countries such as Myanmar and Vietnam later. The inheritance of this instrument has faced great challenges. But the good thing is that more and more people have taken interest in learning to play it to protect the Jing culture.
