Best Dynasty Ever

Video Find of the Day

I love T'ang Dynasty music. [Roughly 7th through 9th centuries AD, China.] I plan on looking for more of these. This one features percussion.

I was looking up the T'ang Dynasty on Wikipedia and found out that its capital was Chang'an, present day Xi'an, which was back then the largest city in the world, and I recalled that Xi'an is reputed to be the origin of the variety of glutinous rice wine I have been trying to imitate. Maybe that explains the affinity I feel.
