The Sound Of Yunnan

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.

Yes everything was spectacular and fascinating very professional and prompt services. There were beautiful places to explore and to see in the 4 hours that we had. The comfort and beauty of the China was incredible, The history, culture and way of life of the local people we bumped into during the layover was beyond our expectations. Hiking on the Great wall after driving through a small remote countryside was very relaxing and rejuvenating. It was the best trip ever to experience on a few hours.

We had not previously used a travel agency for touring. The crew including the driver and tour guide were really funny, friendly and knowledgeable. Despite having limited time we still had free time allowing for shopping and grabbing a meal and drinks. Highly recommend this layover in Beijing.

Booking from South Africa on ChinaTour.net was so quick and easy, however I had to mail customer service as I had not received my confirmation within the 48 hours that the original mail had stated. Once done I received confirmation for all my train and internal flights within 20 minutes of sending the mail. I would highly recommend this website for booking trips through China and i will use it again in future.

Well worth it! Jenny was really nice and incredibly helpful with the immigration process after airport personnel originally escorted to the wrong area and didn’t want to allow leaving the airport. She takes great photos! Beautiful views and fun to take the toboggan down. Wasn’t too crowded on this day - and definitely worth doing with a 7 hour layover. Nice car and driver too.
