Mo li hua 'Jasmine flower song'

Over recent years, we have been enjoying increasingly frequent tours to the People’s Republic of China. It is remarkable to tour the country, seeing the great sprawl of its cities, the vast fields of its countryside, the extraordinary preponderance of technology in daily life, as well as the pride that its people feel in their musical traditions. One song in particular has been part of Chinese culture for centuries, and never fails to raise a smile for our audiences there. The folk song Mo li hua (Jasmine flower) dates back to the early days of the Qing Dynasty, in the 18th century and has remained in public consciousness to the present day. We are taking this chance to celebrate this beautiful song—in an arrangement by Philip Lawson—not just in China, but for our audience globally.
