Guzheng Music

Guzheng is a Chinese traditional plucked musical string instrument with over 2500 years of history. The early types of guzheng emerged during the Warring States period (475 to 221 BCE). The modern guzheng usually has 21 strings with a length of 64 inches.

The guzheng inspired several other Asian zither instruments, such as the Japanese koto, the Korean gayageum, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh. The guzheng should not be confused with the Guqin.
