Pipa, a four-string lute in pear shape, is an instrument that witnesses the cultural communication. The instrument was introduced from Central Asia around 2,000 years ago, and became very popular in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), when the society embraced exotic art forms fervently. Through ages, the instrument has become an indispensable part of traditional Chinese music.

The Pipa tunes have very diverse styles, and are traditionally classified as either Wen Qu (civil and mild tone) or Wu Qu (martial and fierce tone).
