Shirly Sung China (Xinjiang) Folk Song--046: The Snow Lotus on the Ice Mountain


I am lucky that my vocal music teacher -- Ms. Ma has come back FROM Beijing. The time she goes to Beijing has been delayed after September. So, I am luck to have another 7 or 8 months to learn FROM her and I would like to cherish the short time. Anyway, I am thinking that I should learn to accompany with piano for myself -- now I just accompany with electronic organ for myself when I am singing a song that I have written for the Chinese classical poems. Also, I will think of finding another vocal music teacher before she goes. :-)

Tonight, I learned a new Chinese Xinjiang folk song that is FROM movie -- The Guests on the Ice Mountain. This song was sung by two young people, a young spy who was in the enemy team and a young girl who was suffering a pain life in the same team. The young man was compassionated what the young girl suffering and tried to help her to escape so that he exposed himself and be killed.

This song expressed how the young boy to encourage the young girl to keep in the difficult situation and how the young girl thanks the help of the young boy.

I have introduced something about this movie and 2 songs FROM it. Below is the links that I have made for you and hope it will be a little bit help to you to understand the new song more.

Also I hope that you can find that my singing has made a little bit progress. :-)

The Snow Lotus on the Ice Mountain

You are a clear spring on the desert,
you are a snow lotus on the ice mountain.
Storm will not always below,
Ah ... ah...ah,
What time?
Can I see your face with smiles?

Ice mountain is covered by the clack clouds.
Storm is sweeping anything away on the desert,
Happiness is covered under the ice mountain,
Ah ... ah...ah,
My tears,
they can cover the Salier plateau.

Tears will make the jade more pure,
pain will make a person's willing stronger.
Friendship can reduce your pain,
Ah ... ah...ah,
My singing,
it can clean the sadness in your heart.

Your affection is so deep and long as the white clouds,
your care for is just like the crystal ice mountain.
I am just the drift sand of the desert,
Ah ... ah...ah,
No mater the storm,
to bring me to the ends of the earth or not...
