“Hua’er” is a kind of traditional folk song popular in Gansu, Qinghai, and other areas in Northwest China. Recently, they were brought to Shanghai by seven “hua’er” singers, who had sung nearly 20 songs in Shanghai Meilong Culture Pavilion. This is a part of Xuhui’s branding project – “National Music Art,” which is focused on promoting folk music by inviting performers of music listed as Intangible Culture Heritage across China to Shanghai to give performances every month. “Hua’er” has a long history dating back to Ming Dynasty, or more than 540 years ago. About 100 Hua’er songs have been discovered now, and one of the most popular songs is “He Zhou Ling.” In 2009, “Hua’er,” along with “Chinese paper cutting” “Chinese calligraphy” “Chinese seal carving” “Nanyin music” and “grand song of Dong ethnic group,” were included into the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity of United Nations. Born on fields and farming land, “Hua’er” is infused with the atmosphere of life and hard work. It’s usually sung when farmers are herding flock, clearing weeds, or ploughing. The same as other singers, the tall Sun Gazha learnt “Hua’er” from her ancestors. Fearing that it would be lost to the next generation, she formed the Hua’er Folk Art Troupe in last July, and took four students, who were her hope to pass on this art form. In the last few days, the singers had brought their performances to T’ou-Se-We Museum, Shanghai Information Management School and Longhua sub-district’s “Lin Li Hui,” and the audience were deeply touched by the honest and real feelings in their songs that can overcome all the barriers erected by different languages.
