People of Dong ethnic group celebrate Singing Festival in S China


People play music as they sing to celebrate the Singing Festival in Baozeng Village for the ethnic Dong group, Lejiang Town of Multinational Autonomous County of Longsheng in south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Sept. 2, 2017. People tend to believe that the Dong ethnic group keeps its civilization passing on by singing the stories from generation to generation due to lack of written language. The festival featuring music play and daily labor competition is also an occasion to express their wish for a good harvest. (Xinhua/Huang Yongdan)
