Tune of the Day: Mo Li Hua

Traditional Chinese folk song

The title of this popular Chinese folk song means “Jasmine Flower”. The song itself seems to date from the 18th century. The melody has become somewhat well known among Western listeners as it was included by Giacomo Puccini in his opera Turandot, where it is associated with Princess Turandot's splendor.

At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, this music was used in all awarding ceremonies.
