Kāng Dìng Qíng Gē (Kang Ding Love Song), also known as Pǎo Mǎ Liū Liū De Shān Shàng (On the Running Horse Mountain), is a Han folk song from the Sichuan Province. The song is believed to be created by herders and farmers from the Yala channel in the north of Kang Ding City. During the 1940’s, it became popular to sing the song for the Pan Hua Ye (the night before marriage). During the Pan Hua Ye, the singers would change the last names of Li and Zhang to their last names. This would make the song unique to them. In 1989, during the Voyager II space launch, NASA selected Kāng Dìng Qíng Gē as one of the ten most recognized folk songs from around the world. In the late 1990s, the song was also selected as one of the ten most influential international folk songs by the United Nations’ Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. This choral arrangement uses swift, accented, and syncopated rhythms while also employing an abundance of parallel fourths and fifths. The vocal ranges are conservative and the choral parts are repetitious making this an easily accessible song. Enjoy singing this as a set with Tián Mì Mì and Ālĭ Shān Zhī Gē. A thorough IPA pronunciation guide is also included.
