Perhaps no musical instrument is more evocative of China than the erhu (二胡), but its origins are in central Asia: The erhu is one of several instruments historically known as "huqin" (barbarian's fiddle).

In this video, Liu Hong (刘虹) introduces the erhu and plays the classic folk tune "Running River" (江河水).
