Old farmers form folk band

Elders Jiang Xinglong, Chen Shida, Dai Bisheng and Chen Shifan, sing a folk mountain song in the field in Yaozu, the Yao ethnic town in Longhui county, Central China's Hunan province on Aug 25, 2012. They formed a band in 2004 to perform Wa Wu Mountain Song which was listed a national cultural relic in 2008. The songs featuring words of "Wa Wu" are a kind of work song and are mainly sung by the farmers in the town. After they found the band, the four seniors started to perform songs around Yaozu town. Now, they even want to perform out of the town and hope more young people will inherit this ancient art. [Photo/Xinhua]
