Ladies & gentlemen, this week is going to be pretty busy as we'll travel all around China through it's traditionnal and popular music.
Some will probably notice that we like the work by the people at "Le Chant Du Monde" as we already talked about a bunch of their recordings in the past. Some others will maybe complain that lots of the records got the same name... Well they can't be blamed about this. After "chants et danses des pays Arabes", "chants et danses du Maroc". Here we are now with CHANTS ET DANSES DE CHINE (Le Chant Du Monde, LDX-4352, from late 60's I guess). Though the tittle is not really original I must confess that I never been disapointed by any records with this boring name. Today you'll sure enjoy all the great music they carfully selected for this record.
