music recommendation/ 60s

Postby tutisturum » 15 Jul 2015, 22:33

Hi guys, can you make any recommendations on Chinese/ Taiwanese music similar to this:

meaning: female singer, some traditional instruments playing, maybe 60s ? but anything that sounds similar will be just fine
I would be very grateful, I tried to find some albums by myself but it's pretty difficult for me :(

the key word you are probably looking for is mingge (民歌).

With the traditional instrument requirement, you would be looking for mingge with a history/China theme, but preferably not one that has been labelled as patriotic which would be overused.

蔡琴 - 出塞曲

黄大城 - 漁唱

黃大城 - 唐山子民

施孝榮 - 中華之愛

施孝榮 - 易水寒

李建復 - 歸去來兮

I hear these songs all too often in my childhood. Many of them brainwashed me for years.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.
