Danzhou Folk Song Festival

Danzhou Folk Song Festival

Dates: Oct. 2017        Location: Danzhou


In Danzhou, Mid-Autumn Festival time is also Folk Song Festival time! During the festival, groups of singers in brightly colored folk costumes compete to sing local Danzhou folk music, much of it about fishing and braving the turbulent seas. Performances and competitions abound, and the best tunes take the day.


The Danzhou Folk Song Festival dates back to the Song dynasty period, and remains a vibrant part of local Danzhou culture. Romantic duets, call and response, and many more styles of local folk music will be heard throughout the city throughout Mid-Autumn Festival, which will also be celebrated with local mooncakes and of course you can’t miss watching the full moon rise over the sea.
