“Going Home” in China

At The New York Times, Dan Levin writes about Kenny G. and his song “Going Home” in China. “There are many things about modern China that defy easy explanation: parents posing their children next to live tigers, the sight of grown women wearing furry cat-ear headbands while shopping, the performance-art-like spectacle of strangers napping together in Ikea display beds.

But no mystery is more confounding than that of China’s most enduring case of cultural diffusion: its love affair with ‘Going Home,’ the 1989 smash-hit instrumental by the American saxophone superstar Kenny G.”
