Melodies here are drawn from minority tribes, Beijing Opera, ancient traditional sources, and famous composers of recent times. Performed in natural environments such as rain forests, mountain glades, seashores, and the wide plains of the Steppes, they are performed by Chiu Siu Wai by on Ban-di, Qu-di, and Xiao, with Yeung-kum and Er-hu accompaniment.
