At the current Spring of China's Symphony Orchestra, famous conductor Zheng Xiaoying led the Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra to present an original composition of their own great cultural heritage item, Tulou houses. Now, let's have a listen.
 
"Echo of Tulou" is inspired by a unique type of Chinese rural dwelling seen exclusively in eastern Fujian province, known as Tulou. In 2008, Tulou was inscribed on UNESCO World's Heritage List.
 
Divided into five movements, the work is based on the the history of how the unique architecture was born and developed and how it displays the life of Hakka people in the western part of Fujian province.
 
Zheng Xiaoying said, "Music can overcome the barrier of language. Music can enter the hearts of people directly over all barriers. We hope the work can bring another way for listeners to understand China's culture."
 
Composed by famous composer Liu Yuan, "Echo of Tulou" won the country's first Golden Bell Award in 2001.
