Dong Folk Music: People and Nature in Harmony (1-CD + 1-DVD set)

The Dong people, one of China’s most musical minority groups, number nearly 2.5 million and live mainly in Guizhou, Hunan and Guangxi provinces. Known for dwelling in beautiful natural settings, the Dong people have maintained a way of life far removed from the Chinese mainstream.

These studio sessions and field recordings showcase some of the most distinctive music still to be found in today’s China. From choral da ge (or “big songs”) to solo pipa ballads, from festive drinking songs to solemn historical narratives, this collection harkens to a pre-literate tradition in which every aspect of life was expressed in song.

Included in a 48-page, full-color bilingual booklet with essays and complete translations. The accompanying DVD includes rare footage of Dong villagers introducing their music and culture.
