On July 12, a Cantonese music concert is held at Quyang Cultural Center. Liang Zhuoran, a Cantonese music inheritor and a famous Gaohu performer, led the first Cantonese music band [Gaohu (a Chinese violin), Dulcimer, Bamboo Flute, Pipa (4-stringed Chinese lute) and Yehu (two-stringed fiddle with coconut body)] in Shanghai to present classic music tracks for audiences. Besides, they introduced interesting stories about Cantonese music and shared the wonderful music.
Cantonese music, taken by China as an intangible cultural heritage in 2006, boasts a style of lightness, softness, magnificence, refinement and thickness and a feature of south of the Five Ridges: clearness, fluency, and melodiousness. Hongkou used to be a clustering place of Cantonese and inhabited many Cantonese musicians. Thus, it is of special significance for Quyang Community, Hongkou to hold the music concert of this kind.
