Nu Wa

Composed by: Ms. Xie Xiao-jing.

Nu Wa is the Goddess who created the Chinese people. Meaning of the music:

1st Section: One thread of golden light broke the sky, the sacred and solemn Nu Wa came down to the broad and peaceful earth.

2nd Section: Attracted by the Nu Wa's sacredness, birds and horses called on animals to come to the front of Nu Wa. All animals were jumping and applauding. Nu Wa felt that it was not enough to only have mountain, river and animals on the earth, so she decided to create humans kind using mud.

3rd Section: Nu Wa, after taking a bath and cleansed her body, created mud humans using her divine power. After finishing this sacred and magnificent mission, she was going to return to the paradise where she came from. Before leaving she told the human kind that they must cherish virtue, behave kindly, respect the heaven, follow one's fate, and do well in creating and enriching this cycle of human civilization.
