mo jian dao lei......qiang cai dao...

Street Peddlers' Song in Kunming / Chanson de Marchants Ambulants à Kunming

see the recording in my radio.blog (side bar of this page)

from 我的爱人:
"most of chinese hear the song, but nobody know how to write and the exact tones, even the seller..."

磨剪刀嘞, 饷(or 镪)菜刀
mo jian dao lei......qiang cai dao...
sharpening shears... sharpening knife...

"lei (嘞) is an additional character, but doesn't mean anything"

"磨abrading剪刀forfexes嘞, 饷(or 镪)abrading 菜刀 knives"

I've uploaded this sound to Freesound Project:
Of course, I geotagged it! (first geotag in Asia!)

and i got a mail (from a nice guy working on this website) to share that there is a sound with a similar purpose in spain... it's here
