Echoes of History: Naxi Music in Modern China Book and CD-ROM


Based on extensive fieldwork and documentary research in China, this book is a chronicle of the musical history of Lijiang County in China's southern Yunnan Province. It focuses on Donning music, a repertoire borrowed from China's Han ethnic majority by the indigenous Naxi inhabitants of Lijiang County. Used in Confucian worship as well as in secular entertainment, Dongjing music played a key role the Naxi minority's assimilation of Han culture over the last 200 years. The first study of the music in a single region in modern China, this book also examines how indigenous music fits into China's policies toward ethnic minorities, including China's renewed interest in international tourism.
