Da Hai A! Gu Xiang (The Ocean, My Homeland) was originally written by Wang Li-Ping for the 1983 movie “The Calling of the Sea.”  The song reflects on a man’s connection to the sea, a metaphor for his deep love for his mother and homeland.

The treble voice arrangement by Yang Hong-Nian has gained popularity among childre’s and women’s choirs beyond China.  This arrangement is edited by Karl Chang.
