Dong Folk Music — People and Nature in Harmony (1-CD+1-DVD set)
贵州侗族音乐 — 人与自然的和声( 1-CD+1-DVD 集)

The Dong people, one of the China's 55 acknowledged non-Han minorities, live primarily in southwest China, with more than a million living in Guizhou province alone. The remoteness of their communities helps account for the uniqueness of their culture, which is marked not only by its music but also its distinctive architecture. Han Chinese historical sources dating back to the Qin Dynasty (221-206 B.C.) account for the Dong as a descendant of the Luoyue branch of the Baiyue tribe. The Dong people of southeast Guizhou trace their ancestors to the eastern province of Jiangxi.


侗族是古“骆越”的一支。魏晋以后,“骆越”部落又被泛称为 “僚”,侗族即属于“僚”的一部分。古代有不少关于洞(峒)人、峒蛮、峒苗的记载,称这一地带居住的人为“蛮” “溪峒”“峒民”,侗族的族称,可能由此而来,侗族地区不少村寨,目前还保留着“洞”的称呼。

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 is 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.
