Rural women form band in SW China's Chongqing


08:18, January 19, 2012

A band made up of rural women performs in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, Jan. 16, 2012. The band, consisting of dozens of female villagers, was set up at the Hailong Village of Baishiyi Township in August 2010. Due to love of music, the band members trained quite hard. So far, although they are only trained to play western musical instruments for over one year, they have given performances for over 20 times for both rural and urban audiences. (Xinhua/Li Jian)
