Album of Chinese classic literary songs released at UN headquarters
Report by: Black Tie China/ GMK

 

UNITED NATIONS, ) -- Youth of China, the third album of a Chinese classical literary song trilogy, was released Monday at the UN headquarters in New York, the first working day after
 the International Youth Day that fell on Sunday.

The album was composed by You Jingbo, a Chinese American artistic director at the American National Music Center, and sang by Jing Mengtao, a vocal performance student at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.

"We worked very hard and made sure that we see both Chinese and Western elements in this project," said You at the release ceremony, recalling their eight months of collaboration together.

He explained that the songs' lyrics are Chinese classical poetry, and their melodies are composed with traditional Chinese music notes, but their presentation styles are mostly Western, including rap, folk and R&B.

The 10 songs in the new album included Ospreys, a love poet from China's Book of Songs dating back to over 2,000 years ago, and Song of Mulan, a folk song about a female soldier in disguise of a man in
North Wei (386-534 BC), whom the Disney cartoon Mulan was based on.

"A country's strength depends on the country's youth. I hope that, by sharing my appreciation and understanding of my culture, I can inspire and encourage more teenagers to embrace the beauty of
 their own culture," Jing said.

He also hopes to "help contribute in a small but meaningful way, the spreading of ancient Chinese civilization and legacy across
an international platform."

Before making Youth of China, You recorded two other albums of Chinese classical literary songs, with their lyrics selected from Tang and Song Dynasties' poetry.

The three albums as a trilogy will be made available soon in about 180 countries around the world on digital music distribution platforms such as QQ Music, Kougou, Amazon music, Spotify and Deezer.

You hopes these songs could help promote Chinese classical literature education among the new generation of children, and that the Chinese immigrants around the world could relate to or resonate with these songs.

At the ceremony, the World Harmony Foundation presented the Award of World Youth Harmony Ambassador certificates to a group of Chinese music teachers and their pupils, who had put on a performance singing one of You's works, in recognition of their musical teaching or performance "in a way that spreads traditional Chinese music globally" and in celebrating the International Youth Day.

 在新闻发布会上,尤静波向媒体介绍了由他设计的“中华国学歌”LOGO并首次向全球发布。

    这个LOGO由三个部分组成。第一部分是“中国圆”,他说:“圆形是中国人最喜欢的形状,因为它代表着圆满与和谐";第二部分是右上角的“龙”字,“龙”是中华民族的象征,中国人经常称自己为“龙的传人”,但在设计中他淡化了“龙”字的一撇,没有了这一撇,这个字就变成了“尤”,在龙的基础上隐藏着作曲家的姓;第三部分是中间的红色字,“中华国学歌”五个汉字是尤教授专门邀请他的好友尤孝芬女士挥毫赐墨,汉字下面是英文翻译。据此,这个LOGO的设计包含了“中国圆”、汉字“龙”、作曲家的姓以及中国书法”,具有浓郁的中国传统文化意蕴。
