Mid-autumn Folk Songs Festival celebrated in Hainan
Diaosheng, literally meaning "rhyme sounds", is the highlight of the festival. It was originated in the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and prevailed in the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Today, Diaosheng singers give the century-old cultural heritage a modern twist in terms of the lines, notes, rhythm and style. Young men and women usually stand face to face in two rows and lovers would dance hand in hand. The atmosphere is lively and entertaining.
