Ālĭ Shān Zhī Gē(Song of Ali Mountain) is from a renowned location in Taiwan. A legend exists aboutthe origin of Ali Mountain’s name. There was once a chief of a traditionaltribe named Abali. He chased a white deer into a giant mountain that he hadnever seen before. He found there were large amounts of animals for hunting, sohe decided to move his tribe next to the mountain. His people were able to livewith great abundance every year because Abali had lead them to what they nowconsidered a holy place. The tribe decided to commemorate Abali by naming themountain after him, Ali Mountain. ĀlĭShān Zhī Gē praises the beauty of the girls and the strength of the boys andcompares them to the splendor and might of the mountain. Today, Ali Mountain isa symbol of traditional Taiwanese culture. This arrangement paints an idyllicpastoral scene by allowing the beautiful pentatonic melody to be easily heardthrough the texture of the simple yet lush harmonies. Each vocal line is conservativeyet flows interestingly in a cantabile-like manner.
