Dayan Naxi Ancient Concert
Attraction details
Reviewed May 3, 2016

The daily concert of Naxi Music is one of the most remarkable things I have ever heard. Ancient songs played on antique instruments by very elderly musicians, who buried their instruments to preserve them during the cultural revolution. I promise you, you have never heard anything like it!

The music performed by the Naxi Orchestra is a phenomenal experience. The performers, who are carrying an ancient cultural torch forward, play music from past dynasties on antique instruments.

We absolutely wanted to attend a performance by the Naxi Orchestra. Many of the musicians are above 70, some above 80 and the oldest 84 years of age. The program consists of very old ceremonial music pieces, which may not appeal to everyone. Yet, we considered it a very worthwhile visit.

The owner of the guest house I stayed at suggested this show and I was happy to go to the show. It has many musical instruments that are local so the sounds are new to the ear. They explain the show before it starts this is in English and Chinese. I bought a music CD and yes when I came home it played in my player.
