While Lei Yan attends the annual session of the National People's Congress in Beijing, people in her home village in Southwest China's Guizhou province have been busy building a special type of square.

The square will feature performances by lusheng players. The traditional musical instrument of the Miao ethnic group features multiple bamboo pipes, each fitted with a reed, which are placed into a long wooden blowing tube.

The lusheng is played typically during the Lusheng Festival, the most influential festival of the Miao community, which falls at the end of March this year.
