Re: Chinese American 19th century music

I haven't the least idea, but what a fascinating question. Since I am presuming that all such music was person-to-person and may well have been regional and traditional in nature, where would a researcher start? Back in China, to learn what was popularly sung and played on smaller portable instruments in the provinces at the same interval and for decades or a century before?
