Last updated by jasmine at 2013-11-3
The Ancient Naxi Music is a living musical fossil of human civilization; it contains sacred cultural heritage of Chinese history and has great importance in Chinese cultural development as well as the world music industry.
The Naxi people live in the area of "three parallel rivers" northwest of the Yunnan province. They enjoy the lifestyle of being very close to the nature and wild lives, and they are born talent dancers and singers. Thanks to the unique geographic and natural environment of Lijiang City, the diversified culture groups have been living in harmony. The Naxi music reflects the rich cultural diversity; it is rooted deeply in the social, economic and daily lives of Naxi people. The function of Naxi music varies from wedding songs, to funeral dirges, from banquet performance to entertaining musicals and so on.
Tourists have enjoyed the performance of Naxi music a great deal, thus in recent years it became part of the official tourism program of the Lijiang tour. Furthermore local musical bands such as the Dayangu have been invited to perform in Kunming, Guangzhou, Beijing and Hong Kong. They have achieved great success and gained tremendous support and popularity. They were then invited to the UK and Norway attracting tens of thousands of fans, creating quite a phenomenon and raising much international attention.
