something to go with the banana, cheena and ah lian entry

This is the piece Vanessa Mae played during the Hong Kong handover in 1997. It's got all of happy, melancholic, light-hearted and stirring moments. My fave bit is somewhere near the end, just before the drums roll in to steal the show. Even now, this fusion piece still gets me with its brilliant arrangement and execution. Or at least, that's what it sounds like to my very untrained ears. Haha!

p.s. turn up the volume, it's ineffective otherwise.
