【 前言 】
Nanning is a capital city of compact nationalities with Zhuang predominating. From ancient times, Zhuang people like singing to do communications, make friends and express love, also praise work, love and life. Singing and valuing the folk songs have become the special and colorful original primitive culture of Zhuang people.
The Zhuang folk songs are featured in multiple types, unique rhythm and distinctive styles. In view of the structure forms, there are Liaoluo Song, Line Song, Rondeau Song, Sixth-four Linking Song, Five-word Song, etc. In view of the singing manners, there are single-part song, two-part song, three-part song, etc. No matter in the creation of art figures, expression manners, or styles and expression methods, these songs have shown deep flavor of Zhuang nationality.
The original primitive song is key part of “oral and non-material cultural relics” with rich cultural connotations; meanwhile the heritage manner of “hear and sing” causes the difficulty and limit of protection and development, therefore the salvage exploitation and protection have become extremely urgent!
Inheriting the aim of exploring and protecting the Nanning original primitive folk song culture, Nanning has elaborately planned and selected Mashan three-part songs, Yongning Liaoluo songs, Shanglin Sixth-four Linking songs and other special and representative traditional folk song types and songs, and recorded the album of “Nanning Zhuang Folk Song Collective—Sound of Nature from Zhuang People” which have displayed the unique charm of Nanning Zhuang original folk songs in audiovisual forms.
Let us enjoy the melodious and natural rhythm and appreciate the super charm of Nanning Zhuang folk songs.
