Guizhou ( Eng= Gui jo) Province, with its capital Guiyang, is located in the southwest China mainland.

Guizhou Province is unfamiliar to many travelers and tourists. However, the peculiar natural scenery, remarkable national customs, brilliant history, culture and the pleasant climate condition form a unique, aboriginal, unsophisticated and mysterious landscape which is attracting more and more tourists, both domestic and international.

More than 15 minority ethnic groups settled in Guizhou and most of the amazing scenic areas are located in these settled minority areas.

First I introduce Miao people,most of them lived in the Miao and Dong Autonomous prefecture.

Virtually all the ethnic groups in China love to sing and dance. It has been said that when these minorities learn how to speak, they can sing and when they learn to walk, they can dance. Singing and dancing are an integral part of their makeup and are the primary vehicles for expressing passion and optimism. You'll have an opportunity to experience first-hand the music and culture of these fascinating people.

Wuyang River in Zhenyuan is quite beautiful, and Qinglong dong(Green Dragon Cave or Black Dragon Cave) is famous for its Chinese architecture!

QingLong 24 Curves Road,located QingLong County,near Anshun. 晴隆24道拐。

在1941年前晴隆县名为安南,因为与当时法国的殖民地安南(越南)同名易混淆,故就此地晴隆山为名
而改晴隆县。晴隆这个无电缺水仅九百余户山城小镇,由于所处特殊的地理位置和太平洋战争的爆发,成为滇黔通道上的抗战(抗日 )后方重镇。

The Big Song Festival 侗族大歌传歌节实拍
http://dcbbs.zol.com.cn/1/32_9104.html

侗族大歌无论是音律结构、演唱技艺、演唱方式和演唱场合均与一般民间歌曲不同,它是一领众和,分高低音多声部谐唱的合唱种类,属于民间支声复调音乐歌曲,这在中外民间音乐中都极为罕见,侗族大歌不仅仅是一种音乐艺术形式,对于侗族人民文化及其精神的传承和凝聚都起着非常重大的作用,是侗族文化的直接体现。
