茉莉花 (Mo Li Hua) Jasmine Flower
This song is very popular among the Chinese Malaysian students. The main
singer is Crystal Ong. My grand-daughter is learning how to song it in her
Chinese class on every Saturday.
Jasmine Flower 茉莉花 by Crystal Ong a.k. 王雪晶小妹妹
This song was written by a Ming Emperor during the Ming Dynasty (明朝 1368AD
to 1644AD). I can't remember which Emperor.
In 2006, the Chinese President Hu Jintao (胡錦濤), went to visit Africa.
He went to tour a school. After the visit he sang this Chinese folk song
'Jasmine Flower' to thousand of African students. Since then the African
students had learned how to sing it. Currently,
the song, Jasmine Flower, is very popular among the African students.
