I chose to get up early in order to drive my way. There was fog in the mountains. I passed by the tomb of the poetry fairy. Show me the direction. There are fragrance of flowers and bird words along the way. Bring me my brother. Make a good beat. Look at me using 808 to make the primer, and then straddle my trousers. On my back is the brand of the mountain city. Go down the mountain and mark the forest trails. Listen carefully, take it hard, and wave goodbye to my good brother.” Many people have been caught GAI Zhou Yan’s lyrics in “Orchid Grass” were moved by the story and artistic conception, and the experience of “Orchid Grass” published by the well-known music critic Erdi also resonated: On that rainy morning, the sprinkler rang, The friend said goodbye. He (GAI) said that he was sad and crying. The space created by Beat is muddy, dark and empty. The future of this journey is uncertain. The hope and ideals in “Orchid Grass” are that the heart has not been The roughness of the market still retains a pristine place, and the reference to Guan Hanqing is an ancient fantasy born in the barren world. This also has a similar effect in “Tiger Mountain Travel”, which is irreconcilable. Artistic conception and temperament, but because of GAI’s savage meal, they have also merged together, and become a fresh and simple “orchid grass” that is windy, rooted in the secular and surreal.
Whether it is “China” or “Orchid Grass”, making music with national characteristics and cultural roots is GAI Zhou Yan’s consistent philosophy. I hope GAI Zhou Yan can sing all the way and continue to create more moving music works.Return to Sohu to see more
