周云蓬 (Zhou Peng) - 沉默如谜的呼吸

周云蓬 (Zhou Peng) is a Chinese folk musician who mainly relies on acoustic guitar and vocals but adds a bunch of other instrumentation. His songs are haunting without ever being too melancholic or maudlin, and maintain a distinctly traditional Chinese feel while adding copious Western touches.

Also, he's completely blind, which influences the themes of his songs and parts of his style (since I don't speak any Chinese I'm not really sure how, but the song titles on this album are in English so that gives you some idea).
