Ji-Dong-Nuo is the name of a folk ballad of the Yao ethnic people in southwest China, borrowed from the name of a quail who sings beautiful tunes. According to legend, there was a girl who loved singing. However, she became unhappy after she married, since she had to stop singing under the orders of her father. She became divorced because of her depression. On the way back home, she heard a happy quail singing on the hill, changed her mood, and broke out singing a beautiful song. Her husband was deeply moved and loved her again as before. The song has been passed on and given the title Ji-Dong-Nuo, to describe the beautiful story. My little piano solo piece was inspired by Ji-Dong-Nuo, drawing some pitch material from the folk tune, while keeping the characteristics of the girl and the style of Chinese traditional instrumental performance.
