We highly recommend watching this very special video, recorded all over The Hague! Guzheng (Chinese plucked zither) is a traditional Chinese instrument with a history of more than 2,500 years. It can be dated back to the Warring States period (475–221 BC). This song is an adaptation from a traditional Chinese poem written by Li Bai, who was a Chinese poet.
