At the end of each explanation, the music starts slowly, and you can feel the collision of thoughts in the music.

Xian drum music is one of the most important musical varieties in traditional Chinese music and is one type of traditional Chinese “ind and percussion music”. This music genre is popular in the urban and rural areas of Xian, Shaanxi Province, and along the foothills of the Zhongnan Mountains. Xian drum music originated from the Tang Dynasty, the Song Dynasty, the Yuan Dynasty, and the Ming Dynasty, and flourished in the Qing Dynasty. There is no accurate record of its production era, but its sheet music, musical instruments, playing forms, and song titles all have deep roots in ancient Chinese music, especially the music of the Tang and Song dynasties, therefore, Xian Drum Music is known as the “living fossil” of ancient Chinese music.
