I must be getting on in years. Course I'm beginning to sound like my parents. when I was young, I was into rock, etc.

But in the past few years, particularly the last year. I'm into Cantonese/Chinese music. Particularly traditional Cantonese opera.
Here's a performance in Guangzhou university, performing traditional "Yue" (Cantonese) music.
