Cuban musicians release album featuring traditional Chinese songs

Acclaimed Cuban a cappella musical group Vocal Sampling released their latest album "Bu Bu Gao" in Beijing Friday.

The album features a number of traditional Chinese songs adapted for a cappella performance, accompanied by several traditional Cuban music pieces.

The group also announced their plan for a tour in south China's Guangdong Province from Aug. 7 to 9.

This was the first album released by the time-honored vocal group in China, as part of a Chinese music project aiming to revitalize the country's traditional music.

The project, jointly initiated by China Record Group and 13 Month Culture Communication, a Beijing-based art company, gathers musicians from across the country and abroad in a bid to revive the country's best traditional music pieces.

So far, the project has finished the recording of 20 music albums and hosted more than 50 live performances.
