“Ambush from all sides”.

June 14, 2009

If you watch wuxia movies, you must know this Pipa standard – “Ambush from all sides”.

Before Jet Li’s Wong Fei Hung that gave a new lease of life to another Chinese instrument classical “The General’s Order” almost every other wuxia movie would be using “Ambush” as background music particularly during the fight climax – you know the hero and the big bad guy dueling to the death.

Found this on youtube – a real virtuoso performance of this timeless pipa evergreen.

Brilliant … bloody brilliant!
