The Mouth Organ of Concord. As one of the earliest and most commonly recognized Chinese instruments, Sheng, a free-reed, mouth-blown instrument, which can be traced back to at least 3,000 years ago, has withstood against time and still is a vital key piece in today’s Chinese music. Sheng is also said to have inspired the creation of Accordion and Harmonica. Sheng is extremely versatile and expressive in its own right, with a wide note range, as well as much the broad tonal textures. Due to its portability and the polyphony nature, Sheng is also one of the few common accompanying instruments in Chinese music. It’s a must-have piece for scoring a more comprehensive Chinese-theme music.
