Lusheng Festival in Zhaoxing

The Lusheng is a free reed Chinese mouth organ with 5-6 pipes, and this festival is naturally centered on the lusheng. After the first day of October, different lusheng teams will meet in Zhaoxing and Jitang.

The morning ceremony starts with the burning of firecrackers when the elders lead the splendidly attired girls and boys into the competition grounds. They play the song, 'Entering March', with their lusheng, and then play the 'Calling Anthem', which ushers in the hundreds of visiting groups now playing in unison.

By noon, girls decorated with silver bangles, holding red umbrellas, and carrying small, red barrels on their shoulders, and accompanied by young men, will serve sweet wine to all the players. After drinking the wine, the players thank the girls with a tune from the lusheng.

The teams are now divided into groups, two teams forming a group. These groups compete with each other to select a winner. Finally these winners from the groups compete against each other until there is a final winner and champion team.

The end of the ceremony closes with the song, 'Anthem of Sweeping Ground', played in unison by the lusheng players. Supper is hosted by the villagers, followed by hosts and visitors at the drum towers singing songs and playing the lusheng throughout the night.
