Lost Sounds of the Tao

Lo Ka Ping, guqin

  • The guqin was Confucius' instrument, used by scholars and nobles for self-purifiation. Lo was a Taoist priest (1896-1980) who lived in the remote lands of the New Territories behind Hong Kong, recorded by a pupil in 1970. These rare archival tapes were assembled after an extensive hunt in Hong Kong, New York, California and Taiwan.
