Have you heard the tunes that Communist China songs are set to? Straight out of Russia, about as "non-Eastern" (might be politically incorrect, but the terminology is SO easy to understand) as you can get. It's kinda comical, actually, realizing that these nationalistic tunes rely so much on the same from other countries.
Contemporary Chinese music is a world apart from that of "tradition."
