Young drummers’ impromptu performance in ShanXi 山西 province

Energetic and spirited music ...


"Came across this band of drummers inside the so-impressive temple built and dedicated to one of the heroes of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Guan Yu (later immortalized and widely worshipped as Guan Di). Guan Yu was a native of Yuncheng.


The temple's giant modern statue of Guan Di was funded by donations from units of the party-state and state sector enterprises.


[The] Band of drummers were practising and they put on this impromptu concert for us."
