Shirley Sung Chinese (Taiwan/Gao Shan Nation) Folk Song--0027: Ali Shan Moutain's Girl

LISTEN TO SHIRLEY SINGING THE SONG   


Hi, friends, today, I would like to introduce and sing a Taiwan Gaoshan nation folk song that is from movie Ali Shan Mountain’s Wind and Clouds . I have been attracting by it since I heard it first time for its romantic lyrics, beautiful music and funny local dialect.

This song is written in mandarin, but, there are many interesting Gaoshen nation's dialet in it to help to express the main meaning. They are beautiful, but difficult to read and to sing. So, Today, I read and previewed it for at least 2 hours, however, I still felt difficult to sing it clear the dialect part in my vocal music lesson tonight.

Also, unfortunately, I hurt my own waist today, so that I could not stand up as usual, so, I sang it on my chair and every sentence that I sang made my waist pain as to be hit by a needle...:-)

Anyway, I have tried to do my best to complete it. I do hope that my effort will has a little bit help to you to know more about China' culture... :-)

Along with the time, more and more Taiwan music and songs have come to the mainland and be popular. Do you still remember the    Chinese (Taiwan) Balladry--014: Grandmother's Penhu Bay that I had introduced for you some days ago? , I do hope both of the Taiwan songs will bring you a big smile.
