guardian.co.uk staff photographer Dan Chung films Zhao Cong playing Chunjianghuayueye (Moonlight over Spring River) on the pipa, a traditional Chinese string instrument. Filmed in front of one of China's most famous landmarks, the Drum Tower in Beijing.

Shot on a single Canon HV20 and graded in Magic Bullet looks. This simple video had to be shot in only two takes and then cut together, the audio is from a radio mic into a Beachtek adapter.
