Zhong Guo Feng girl group Seven Sense continues their praise and reverence for Tang scholars in this new single Five Tones 宫商角徵羽*. This new single incorporated Peking Opera, an important but fading part of the Chinese artistic heritage. Like their previous single, the lyrics draws its inspiration from Chinese idiom and Classic Poetry. The best part of the lyric is that it’s written by the youngest member Liu Muzi (21).
