Beijing Street Sounds


In the streets of Beijing one can hear the sounds of vendors who wander through neighborhoods announcing their services or products with sing-song refrains that carry for hundreds of meters. In the outdoor markets, vendors call out the names and prices of their products. Below is a small collection recorded with a Samsung mobile telephone. I have used the selling Soy Milk Song as my own mobile phone ring tone. I invite you to download and use these songs in the same way or, if you are in Beijing, I would be happy to put new songs on the site (Email: qiaokate@gmail.com).
