Chinese traditionnal music: Pipa

Pipa is one of the traditionnel chinese music instrument which is played like a guitar, held vertically.
Apparently, the player is a chinese woman whole immigrated to Canada...She played beautifully, with very good strumming technique, playing the pipa requires you to strum a single string with all five fingers and she is able to do that with the same amount of energy and precision for each of her fingers!

Another one is called the 12 stupid abeit-good-looking gals team playing
El Condor Pasa

It's very famous, I think you know the music.

The original version, sung in spanish

If you got time,
The piece is called 'The horse race', but he's not that good, i've seen better.
