April 2009 First Festival, Hani Terrace Farming Yunnan, Part 1

A strange variant of tourist “show”, but one designed by and “for” this sub-tribe of Yi.
Expensively staged, with perhaps 1,000 performers, all singing in highland polyphony. But with sophisticated electronics (amplifiers) to enhance the echo effect so unique to this kind of sound-baffling terrain. (see May 12 2012 upload of Hmong counter-song). Choreographed by Shaman Jaga’s patron Yang Liping.
