Sound of the Desert


I frequently watch one of the Chinese channels which for me is 474 At present one of the dramas is taking my interest but of course I have no Mandarin so I don't understand the dialogue. Not sure who is romantically entwined since there seem to be at least two couples. I cannot decide where the drama is set and what is the desert and surely the 'sound' cannot just be the small flutes being played now and then.
Any help would be most appreciated.

The Virtuous Queen was easier to understand for me.

I also wonder how long it takes to do those elaborate hairstyles every morning....

Peggy,

Sound of the Desert is based off a novel from Tong Hua (who also wrote Scarlet Heart/Startling By Each Step). Check this page from Koala's playground for brief description of the characters from Sound of the Desert (Da Mo Yao): http://koalasplayground.com/2012/03/11/da-mo-yao-and-yun-zhong-ge-character-descriptions/

The novel has been translated to English on Koala's Playground too: http://koalasplayground.com/recapped-dramas/ and scroll down till you see under "Books" the following: Da Mo Yao (Ballad of the Desert)/ 大漠谣

Another previously aired drama on LA-18 sometime last year that was from author Tong Hua, was Perfect Couple.
