I’ve already posted something from Oriental Records and quite a few Cantonese records, but I just couldn’t resist sharing this recent find. Otherworldly!

hi,
huadan is a young woman not elderly and its furongqiang(zhongban) THEN man-zhongban. furongzhongban means that there is usually 16 beats of singing then 4 of music then one of silence(played by the large wood block). this kind of zhong ban is usually kind of fast. regular zhongban is just singing w/ no long jeui (musical interludes)
