The best of the Chinese music (boundlessly inspiring) in 10 songs ~ tagged!

   Thank you Destination Infinity for giving me the chance to collect these songs here. And it will be a post divided in 2 or 4 posts since i would like to dedicate some time this week and gather 10 best ones not only in Chinese but also in English (although for your tag there will be many listing in this language), Italian (my mothertongue) & Spanish. And why not adding Croatian which is the language from my father side and sounds just amazing to the ears and also to the soul!  This tag is in fact titled Slow, Melodious, Soulful music

I think we are made out of music, each small part of our body, muscles and molecules have their own music, each human being is merged into music from the moment of the birth to the end of life and after. The music of the universe is all pervading and speaks divine lyrics. People who do not love and appreciate real music are possibly lost and disconnected from their inner beauty. Chinese music is charged in vibes especially when played by folk & traditional instruments. They are all very meditative & melodius. The music of the TAO for example reaches out ancient roots in China (songs 2-7-8-10). The others are rock/pop/movie track from the Eighties until now.

  1. Listened to them – Except the 7th and the 8th Song. My favorite songs are – Song No. 1, Song No. 4 and Song No. 6. Absolutely loved the instrumental in the first song. Loved the soulful singing in the fourth song and liked everything about the sixth song including the visuals and the sanskrit version! Thanks for the recommendations 🙂
