Every weekend, about 20 amateur musicians gather under a big tree in a square in Beidou village, Chongqing, where they play various instruments such as drums, cymbals, trumpets, French horns, creating music that is only interrupted by the noise of tractors used by villagers to farm their land.

The mountainous area is an hour by car from downtown Chongqing in Southwest China.

And the musicians are the stars of the village.
