独弦琴简介
About the Duxianqin

独弦琴,顾名思义,只有一根琴弦。它以这种极为简朴的构成,通过演奏者右手的拨弦配以左手特别的音高调制方式便能演奏出动听的音乐。独弦琴主要由中国广西南部以及越南的京族人所演奏,它既可以作为独奏乐器、歌唱时的伴奏乐器,也可以在乐队中演奏。独弦琴是古老的乐器,京族人通过它表达对美好生活的向往,描绘爱情,歌颂家乡。
Duxianqin ("独弦琴", meaning “single-string instrument”) is interesting as it is a plucked string instrument with only one string and an unusual pitch modulation mechanism for the left hand. It is a traditional musical instrument played in very southern part of China (Guangxi province) and in Vietnam by Jing(京) people. The instrument can be played either as solo, singing accompaniment or in ensemble. Originating from ancient times, the music of Duxianqin usually tells wishes and hopes for better life, love stories and hymn for their hometown.
