The two folk songs in this arrangement are contrasting in style but they both share the characteristic pentatonic scale that is a staple of Chinese and other Asian cultures. Jasmine Flower musically portrays the lovely scent and beauty of the flower that is often worn in the hair of Asian women. Feng Yang Ge is a much livelier song that combines the pentatonic scale with syncopated rhythms. "Feng Yang" is a region in the Anhui Province of China and "Ge" means song. Correlates with Book 1.
