In today's program, we will bring you a song titled, Kites Flying in the Evening. This song is somber with no climax; Though it's vivid and delightful, with an Erhu and Lute. The tune tries to present the happy activities of people playing kites in the evening when the moonlight shed on the kites and the players. And the kites flying towards the sky is just like birds flying.

Often in Chinese, kites are translated as paper birds because no matter what the pattern is, the kite does look like a bird flying in the sky. And the literal translation of the title of the tune here is “birds flying in the evening”.
