Some great mongolian singing by Enkh Jargal. Sadly the only album I have from him is kinda meh, but this is beautiful



And some music from the altai republic



Japanese music for koto and shakuhachi



And some shamisen music



Miya Masaoka is mostly active in the experimental music scene, in fact the second song is a composition by Thelonious Monk, but it all still sounds relatively traditional.



And here's some indonesian gamelan

I'm glad you liked them!

Another person you might like is Lǚ Wénchéng, who was a really influential Chinese composer and erhu player from back in the day. I have a collection of his music from, I think, the 1940s that's really good. This is one of the tracks from it:

Thanks for the selection, long-beaked grindy. Some real beauties there. The singing on that Altai Kai track is something to behold, really quite something. I'd stroke your long beak as way of appreciation, if only I could.

Liked that last one too, Janszoon, reminds me of those very old kung fu movies.

I see. You best get your post count up. We can't have all that music in your head going unshared.

I watched the movie, House of Flying Daggers, again recently and was struck by how beautiful the music was.

Here's the kinda sound I'm after:





All recommendations welcome.
1.
The first video I quote ”Lovers“ made by a famous Japanese composer. His name is 梅林茂 (Japanese official name use Chinese characters, you know it)
Japan has 250 famous composers at least, Japan attached great importance to music education. Therefore, I think japan is a Music Empire on today.

Japanese composers love to make a Chinese ancient wind music, There are many great Chinese music made by Japanese composers. but unfortunately, most Japanese made Chinese music always use 'Erhu' this instrument. but other Chinese traditional instrument, they always ignore it.

Although all Japanese instruments come from Tang dynasty, but, nowadays, these instruments not popular in China, just popular in Japan. That's why sometime you listen to some Japanese music feel these music very "old" & a long history feeling. because these Japanese instruments come from Tang dynasty. Japanese musician still use them on today, but Chinese musician less use them on today.

Common sense is : Chinese music have a long history feeling + Miss ancient time feeling + History of melancholy feeling +......
But sometimes you listen to some Japanese music you get "Immolation Devil/Ghost and God" feeling and get "elder than Chinese music" feeling, because it also related to Japanese Sacrifice/Ghost culture. The point is Japanese use these Tang dynasty's instruments let you get "elder than Chinese music" feeling.

I share you a best "Lovers" version play by "Chinese 12 Girls Band" and another music made by Japanese play by "Chinese 12 Girls Band"
If you want you can search "12 Girls Band" on YouTube



the second video---I can't find other video better than this one on YouTube




2.
The second video I quote your post, this music is garbage(I'm sorry to that) But If your are Chinese, you'll know there are tons of music better than this one.

I just show you 3 music, let you know what is the real beautiful Han-Chinese music. I'm sure you will love it

I really like Michiyo Yagi. Not sure exactly how "traditional" she is, but she is the main influence on my wanting to get a kyoto. Her music really tells a story and has a unique beauty about it.



Is Yagi a part of a subgenre of Asian music that I don't know much about? I'd love to hear more like this.
