This is a beautiful song by Vietnamese erhu. Its lyric is very metaphorical, but, yeah so beautiful ^^. I really love it and I'm sure you guys will love it too. You can listen to the version with voice here: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3YZjr7pTD_k

Vietnamese erhu has a distinctive style that is different from chinese erhu. can you feel it? (this is a video performance of "dan nhi" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci0K84...

(This is another Vietnam erhu, which is very weird: http://youtube.com/watch?v=f9WVTb83KUM )
By the way, the dresses in this video are called "ao dai". "ao dai" is vietnamese traditional dress. It's the uniform for many high schools too.
Lyric:
I was lying down, remembering
a pure day, a tilted season
the blurred, distant wheat filed
the bird wings bending at the end of the sky

I came back to that place
A green shoulder
A green stream of hair
Is that the horizon
or a shower at the end of the sky

And the wind follows me, drifting on that path
And the sunlight follows me on that deserted river
The season has passed through the deep green regions
That person has forgotten the times that I felt sad

From every footstep on that road that I once passed
has blossomed flowers, deserted flowers
That person has gone through my words
Hey, that noon dream
when will I return?
The sound of a temple's bell
