Lan Peiwen, an inheritor of the art of Zhuang brocade, joyfully sings a Zhuang ethnic folk song accompanied by the sound of looms in Xincheng county, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Aug. 20, 2020.

He came up with the following lyrics: “Let me sing a folk song for you. Xincheng county has the best-known Zhuang brocade. Go and ask people about it if you don’t believe me. It used to be presented to emperors in Beijing as tribute.”
