Guanglingsan is one of the most important pieces in Chinese music history for guqin, a plucked seven-string Chinese instrument from the zither family with a history of more than 3,000 years. It is closely related to Ji Kang, a celebrated Chinese scholar, musician and poet from the Western Jin Dynasty (265-316).

Ji was known as one of the Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove, a group of Chinese scholars, writers and musicians of the Wei (220-265) and Jin (265-420) dynasties.

When he turned 40, Ji refused to work as an official for the court and was framed and sentenced to death.
