Erhu is a traditional musical instrument with a beautiful sound and exquisite performance. From the perspective of its timbre characteristics and development environment, it is closely related to Chinese traditional opera. Therefore, in the middle of the 20th century, Ms. Huifen MIN, a famous performer, proposed the concept of "vocal tune "which became the new pursuit of the Erhu's creation and performance. As contemporary performers, we should have a deep understanding of the connotation of "vocal tune", feel its value and significance, practice this concept in performance on our own initiative, and promote the overall development of the contemporary Erhu art while the individual performance is improved.
