Enjoy traditional Mongolian culture in NE China


Traditional Mongolian cultural performances "Jingxiangyue" and cham dance are played at a temple in a Mongolian autonomous county in northeast China's Liaoning province.

"Jingxiangyue" was formed during the cultural exchange between Mongolia and Han nationalities. “Jingxiangyue” is an instrumental music performed by lamas in folk funeral affairs. Instruments including sheng, reed pipes, flutes, suona horns, drums, cha and cymbal are used when playing the music.

The cham dance is a lively masked and costumed dance associated with some sects of Tibetan Buddhism and Buddhist festivals. The dance is accompanied by music played by monks using traditional Tibetan instruments. The dance often offers moral instruction relating to compassion for sentient beings.
