A dance troupe from Haiti held its debut show in Beijing on Wednesday, greeting people in the Chinese capital with exotic dancing steps from the Caribbean Sea and strong beats of Haitian music.

Dancers from Ballet Bacouloud' Haiti, a famed folk dance group in the Caribbean country, enthralled audience members with a show named Impression of Haiti at the Tianqiao Performing Arts Center. Accompanied by powerful rhythms of drums and trumpets - the main instruments of Haitian music, the artists told stories of Haitian people's lives, the Haitian history, culture as well as tales and legends, with a repertoire of 14 programs.

Ten Chinese violinists also played on stage, joining hands with Haitian musicians, adding a Chinese flavor into the show.

"They cooperated very well," said Zhao Haoran, a Chinese audience from a public relations company. "I really enjoyed the enthusiasm for life reflected in the dances and music."
