China's undiscovered gems: Japanese vlogger tries Chinese folk song

Global Stringer


Furukawa Takeshi, a Japanese vlogger who's been working in Shanghai for over seven years, loves music and is obsessed with Chinese folk songs.

The unique cultures and ethnic customs behind such songs deeply attract him. In this video, Furukawa challenged himself to perform a classic Chinese folk song called "Youth Dance."

He said that, compared to Japanese music, Chinese music focuses more on emotional expression and direct delivery. For Furukawa, music is a method to learn Chinese culture. He hopes that China and Japan can have more in-depth exchanges and cooperation in the musical arena, and that musicians can impress audiences in both countries with more outstanding performances.
