"Sunset" was recorded in Gao Hong's home in the US. Issam Rafea from Syria, plays the Arabic oud, and China-born Gao Hong plays the Chinese pipa. This collaboration blends Chinese and Arabic music and ancient souls from Syria and China. Issam and Gao express their feelings inspired by the beauty of sunsets. The world is in crisis as the environment is being destroyed. This piece reminds people that coming together and doing our part to protect the environment is the only way we can continue to enjoy the peacefulness of sunsets.
