Chinese Harp 古筝曲 ♪

A great instrumental ♪ piece 入骨相思  ft Liu Yong Xi (刘泳希) aka 千指大人 [Lightning Fingers] from “Our Shining Days”, a 2017 youth comedy movie about a group of High School Music Academy students and their efforts to revive and promote Chinese classical music.

It’s one of the really lovely modern Chinese movies I have watched so far, with an interesting plot, quite different from anything you may have watched before and definitely worth watching if you’re a fan of the language & culture, and even if (or just because !) you have absolutely no idea about modern China. 🙂

As some of you already know, I love instrumental music and this movie presents Chinese traditional music in a new light, re-arranging ancient classics to suit modern taste. Anyway, below is the musical trailer, and here’s the link to the movie on youtube (complete with English subs). Please enjoy !

✏️ Original Poem in Galician:
Chove en Santiago
Meu doce amor
Camelia branca do ar
Brila entebrecida ao sol.

Chove en Santiago
Na noite escura.
Herbas de prata e sono
Cobren a valeira lúa.

Olla a choiva pola rúa
Laio de pedra e cristal.
Olla no vento esvaido
Soma e cinza do teu mar.

Soma e cinza do teu mar
Santiago, lonxe do sol;
Agoa da mañan anterga
Trema no meu corazón.

Madrigal Á Cibdá De Santiago” Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936)
