About the website
The objective of this website is to introduce the Chinese Mouth Organ – Sheng（笙）to people from all over the world. Although the Sheng is an ancient Chinese traditional wind instrument, it is now able to play many different genres of music besides Chinese classical/folk music.
This website was launched on 22 November 2003 with a different website name and domain name. The website and domain names were changed again after a few years.
Old website names:
1) Tunes of the Sheng (Version 1)
2) theshengplayer.com (Version 2)
The website was shut down on 29 November 2010. On 11 August 2015, The Sheng Player website was re-created with a new domain name (www.theshengplayer.net).
