According to Zhou Long, various techniques have been used in his composition to mimic the tone of traditi上海品茶微信

Zhou Long attributed his knowledge of folk music to his experience of studying at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing上海品茶微信

上海品茶微信”These traditional elements of Chinese culture and folk music are fundamental and inseparable parts of my composition. We
