Ziyin LIU


Music is a spiritual symbol of a country and a nation, and it can best reflect the cultural connotation of a nation, demonstrating the inherent humanistic spirit, ways of thinking, imagination and cultural awareness of a nation. In the long history of Chinese culture and historical heritage and national music art practice, Chinese folk music has formed the cultural spirit with “harmony” as the core. Chinese folk music cultural spirit with “harmony” as the core has profound cultural origins, distinctive artistic features, typical aesthetic value and rich social function. Today, we must adhere to the “double for” direction and “double hundred” policies, strengthen national music art, promote national music art heritage, and carry forward national music cultural spirit to achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
