More Wang Leehom's "Chinked-out" Tracks


I decided to post the rest of Wang Leehom's "chinked-out" tracks from his 2006 album Heroes of Earth.

Track 1 "Zai Mei Bian " (在梅邊) - check out the digital manipulation of Beijing Opera vocal samples and the rhyming in the end:



Track 2 "Mistake in the flower field" or "Hua Tian Cuo" (花田錯) - Wang plays an erhu solo in this ballad (he says in English, "Listen to my erhu):



Track 3 "Heroes of Earth" (蓋世英雄) - featuring Chinese American MC Jin (rapping in English and Cantonese) and syncopated rhythmic collage of Chinese percussion and vocals:

This "chinked-out" style of music is known as "Zhong Guo Feng" (中国风) which means something like "China Wind" or "China Style".

This style was popularized by Jay Chow.
