It is called Xiaohuang Yuzhai, a "hometown of songs", located in the northeast of Congjiang County in southeastern Yunnan. It is a small village worthy of our pride. As early as 1996, Xiao Huangs four Yi girls Just in Paris, singing Chinese folk art with singing, unaccompanied and undirected harmony is even more fascinating to the Parisian who is picky about art. This is rare in the international music scene at the time. It is like spring music. It has created a veritable "hometown of Chinese folk art."
Understanding Xiao Huang, you have to start from the song, understand the history of the song, understand its culture, and feel the simplicity and kindness of the Yi people. In Xiaohuang, the name of the Yi people is very different from that of the Han nationality. The boy of the Yi nationality calls it Luo Han, the girl calls it wax , the child calls it wax , and the old man calls it silver old. From the beginning of the study, the wax scorpion will be sent to the musicians to start learning children's carols. Adult wax scorpions and arhats have fixed time learning exercises every day. Their lives are carried out and accompanied by songs and musical instruments. There are also many categories of Acura, and there are similarities in listening to them. Listening is different. There are also many categories of
acura, and there are similarities in listening to them. Listening is very different. The waxy songs mainly sing the pastoral life, the sound is pure and bright, innocent and lively. It sounds like a warm sunshine. Silver is based on narrative songs. Low and soft, in the voice of Xiao Huang, the secrets and stories that are unknown. The song is the warmest touch and the hardest fist.
The Han family has a book that can't be read, and the family has a song that can't be sung. The Yi people have no words, so their wisdom and history are preserved by language and songs. The children grew up listening to the songs, and the songs told them the truth of life, the history of the Yi people. Young men and women are in groups of three and five, gathered in "Yuetang", using songs to convey affection and find people they like. The old man sat by the campfire and sang, and the time passed.
Just stepped into Xiaohuang, a two-and-a-half-year-old Yi nationality girl hung two small noses and ran to me in front of me. I sang non-stop, I was very surprised at the time, until her grandfather told me This little guy is singing songs to us, and I was surprised to find that the "singing voice" of the little guy is really high, low, slow, and inconsistent, and occasionally mixed with a little melody. At this moment, I suddenly remembered what Mr. Pan said along the way. In the eyes of Xiao Huangren, "songs raise the heart, raise the body," singing and eating are just as important. They sing and sing to fill the spiritual gap and develop a good "singing with singing and singing for fun". habit. From the time of learning, the children began to teach singing, teaching the ox leg, teaching the playing cymbals, etc., and they have been singing, pulling, and playing to the old, and have been passed down from generation to generation. Its no wonder that since ancient times, it has been the birthplace of big songs.
