The Qihe River in Hebi city of Henan province is the river that appears most in The Book of Songs, the oldest existing collection of Chinese poetry. Let's appreciate this song about love, titled Guan Ju, on the banks of the Qihe River.

In the video, we can see Chinese bianzhong (chime bells), which are cast in bronze and consist of flat round bells of different sizes arranged in the order of pitch and hung on a huge bell stand. China is the first country to manufacture and use musical bells.

The video was provided by the All-Media Marketing Planning Center of the Henan TV station
