A typical tour of China passes through the major cities of Beijing and Shanghai with excursions to Xian and Guilin. Even if you’ve taken several trips to China, you probably have never seen some of the sights and sounds found in KQED’s Soundscape of China.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Muslim prayers at a mosque in Kashgar, Xinjiang
- Women inmates sing at a Re-education Through Labor Camp outside Beijing
- Matron singing at an orphanage in Jiazuo City, Henan
- Buddhist monks chanting at Jokhang Temple, Lhasa, Tibet
