Miao Folk Music: People and Nature in Harmony (2-CD set)

The Miao (or Hmong, as they are often called outside China) stretches into Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, but the people themselves trace both their ancestral homeland and the cradle of civilization back to southwest China, with more than half of their population living in Guizhou province alone.

These recordings, made both in the broadcasting studios of Guiyang and in the mountain villages of southeast Guizhou, sample some of the music that remains closest to Miao tradition. From various forms of feige (or “flying song”), where solo singers customarily call to their lovers over long distances, to ensemble music for the lusheng, a bamboo mouth organ ranges in size from less than 12 inches to more than 12 feet, this collection offers scenes from a community that even today remain apart from the encroachments of modern-day life.
