“Traditional music in China is played on solo instruments or in small ensembles… The scale is pentatonic… instruments are traditionally divided into categories based on their material of composition: skin, gourd, bamboo, wood, silk, earth/clay, metal and stone. Chinese orchestras traditionally consist of bowed strings, woodwinds, plucked strings and percussion.” (more from Wiki)
