The Sound Of Yunnan

$75 For 1people
Detail
The Sound Of Yunnan

  The large derivative ecological singing and dancing set “The Sound Of Yunnan”, is the sister of the original singing and dancing set “Dynamic Yunnan”. The show was premiered on May 7, 2009 in Kunming.From May 2016,“The Sound Of Yunnan” daily shows at Lijiang Yunling theater.

  The show is created by Yang Liping, a famous dance artist. It is an understatement to say she is the reigning queen of dance in China, a gift from God to the land of Yunnan. The Sound Of Yunnan is the most ancient sound,is the sound of nature. The Sound Of Yunnan is the sound of river flowing, the sound of river swelling. It is also the sound of wind, thunder, lightning, insects and birds, chicken and dog. As Yunnan folk saying goes: every leaf in Yunnan will dance, every stone in Yunnan will sing, even the sound of the wings of the butterfly is the rhythm. The Sound Of Yunnan is the sound made by people who live in the nature.In Yunnan,people will sing when birth,become old,get sick,death,even in the lawsuit. The Sound Of Yunnan is not just for the eye, but also for the ear. It use the world's most primitive percussion instruments including bowls, bamboos, bells and drums of all sizes.

  In the chapter “Fetal tone”,use the bowl as a kind of musical instrument. This is a kind of initiative. It is because the sound of the bowl is the resonance of the heart and heart. It is the fetal tone of every new life in the womb.In the chapter “Give a birth”, They use a unique percussion instrument in Yunnan,when a woman gives birth, villagers come together and play the drum to help her. In the chapter "Sun Shower", a group of young women use round bamboo sieves to winnow grains. The sounds of a drizzle and then of a shower are produced by sifting. “Tigers and Tigresses” are childishly playful. The “Strange Birds” offers plenty of laughter besides imaginative ways to recreate sounds. Another chapter shows that many instruments are readily fabricated on the side of the field with improvisation. Roots, stems, branches, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds of plant and even sickle hoes, pots and pans, water tankers, who can make a sound are likely to become instruments. Then the show reproduces the scene of Tea Horse Road. “Drunken Drums” brings the performance to a rousing crescendo, reminds one of drunken fist, the kungfu move popularized by Jackie Chan.

  Speaking of the dancers, unlike professional performers who inhabit the parts at best, these young men and women live the parts. They were plucked from mountains and rice fields. When they dance, it's not part of their job, but part of their lives. They are living out their dreams and joys and frustrations right there on the stage. The raw energy they exude is so infectious you cannot but become part of them.

I was so pleased with my tour of Beijing! The tour picked me up at my hotel and we saw the Forbidden City, Great Wall, had a fantastic lunch, toured a jade store, and got a foot massage. The tour guide was funny, kind, and efficient! She showed genuine concern for our needs and everyone on the tour was genuinely happy! This is the tour to book with. You will see all the sites and you’ll have such a pleasant time. I would recommend it to anyone!

Thank you for the hard work and dedication in making my trip great. Every detail from local flights, hotels, personal drivers and the local tour guides were fantastic. Before the actual trip I called several times and was able to get pleasant help from a kind agent who answered all my quest. Each day was better than the other I even wished I had more time in the country to get to explore more cities in depth. Shanghai was jaw dropping and in Beijing I was able to catch the flag raising ceremony in the greatest square with great accuracy and tradition. The local food was phenomenal and I had the pleasure to join a local family for one dinner and it was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the ease of everything in the country and I recommend the company to anyone who is interested in a complete Chinese experience.

Excellent guide and bus driver throughout the vacation. Accommodation was excellent and the pace was perfect. All the people were great to travel with and no one was late getting back on the coach after we stopped for photo opportunities, shopping stops or toilet breaks. The Chinese meals supplied for lunch were excellent. Over all had an excellent time with my fellow travellers on this holiday. We had a wonderful experience without any hiccups, from the time we arrived and met up with our beautiful tour director Haha and our fellow travelers who were a fun group to tour with. This group tour was very good value for money and i could tell it was all the travelers wanted.

The holiday of a life time our adventure in the Great Wall was without a doubt our favourite family trip. The comfort and beauty of the country, the incredibly caring crew, the delicious food, the history we learned from our competent and friendly tour director, along with the stunning beauty of the views hiking around the area and into small remote alleyways in the hutongs was very relaxing. The accommodation was more than adequate with rooms being serviced everyday. There was ample deck space to lounge, reading or talking. The staff on the hotel were lovely and attentive. Excellent.

The services we received from Jenny the tour director was excellent. She was well informed, extremely helpful as regards the requirements and accommodation of my husband and myself. We welcomed a few of her suggestions which were given in a professional and constructive manner, not at all pushy as we’ve found some operators to be. Very professional and we look forward to experiencing more of the services in future. We would recommend this company and would use them again.

As an American visitor ready to tour China i wanted to get in touch with Chinese People and their culture and traditions through the fabulous regions and landscapes as well as their fascinating cities and lovely countryside and I achieved it throughout the tour. The highlight of my tour was the mighty Yangtze River cruise that went smoothly and was also fun. Eating Chinese food in the local joints also was a nice part of further discovery. Highly recommended.

It was a great trip and the guides were especially enjoyable. One of the guides was really kind since as we toured the sites she gave us the facts and was able to bring humor into the conversations as we spent time together. We were very happy with the arrangements that were provided like picking us up at the airport, making sure we got to the next stop ok, everything appeared very well organized. About the hotels they helped us book we really appreciate the comfort of all inclusive basis.
