I originally came across on Chris's Mandarin Slices blog and decided to have a go at a subtitled song myself. I have had a bit of trouble with their interface being somewhat jerky at times, but it is a great service even so. I may do some more in the future, though the process is a little time consuming so it probably wont be a very regular thing on here.

I decided to add subtitles to the song BuPa BuPa which I had already translated into Pinyin previously.

An English translation of the song can be found HERE.

Some Relaxing Traditional Chinese Music

Here is a link to a music program from Radio National called The Daily Planet featuring a Chinese Quartet called The Silk String Quartet.

There is a couple of minutes of book reading and other stuff at the beginning of the recording, but it is more than worth a listen.
