Ba Yin Box | 八音盒 – Chinese Music Show

Ba Yin Box, 八音盒, plays a wide variety of Chinese music, 中國音樂 — from ancient to contemporary, traditional to modern, folk to rock, featuring artists from mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and overseas.

Ba Yin Box is a Chinese word for music box. “Ba Yin” means eight sounds. Ancient Chinese classified musical instruments in eight categories: silk, bamboo, wood, stone, metal, clay, gourd and skin/leather, so “Ba Yin” symbolizes all the musical sounds in the world.

DJ Connie will also have guests on the show regularly to discuss China-related topics, such as Chinese culture, language, arts, food, and current affairs.
