Following the Rainbow to Yunnan, Feeling the Love and Sound of Everything
— Listening to the Sound of Yunnan
Jinsha river, Lancang River, Nujiang River… Rivers are running quickly, rushing across thousands of mountains of Hengduan Mountain Chain. The Yunling Mountain Chain and Yuanjiang River Valley divide the colorful and mysterious land of Yunnan into different western and eastern terrains. At the northern border with Tibet, the Meili Snow Mountain, which is as high as 6740 meters above sea level, stretches into the clouds. At the southern border with Vietnam, is the Yuanjiang exit, which is wrapped in the primitive forest, and is only 76.4 meters above sea level. Between the high mountains and deep valleys, scattered basi and lakes. It is perhaps the most complex and diverse land in China, and is the deep and mysterious land in the mind of countless people. It is the home where the sun and the moon moored on the horizon. Stone forest, soil forest, red earth, moraine lake, terrace… Orchids and rhododendrons are in full bloom in the deep mountains of Hengduan Mountain Chain; elephants, golden monkeys, gibbons and various rare birds and beasts wander in the tropical rain forest of Xishan Banna; around the bamboo house surrounded by bambusa, peacocks leisurely pace; beside the colorful Cangshan and Erhai lake, there are thousands of butterflies flying by the spring…
The cultural landscape, the complexity of its ethnic customs, its beauty and even wildness, are no less than its natural ecology. 25 out of the 56 ethnic groups live here, and various kinds of primitive beliefs and the adherents of the world’s four religions co-exist here. For three thousand years, old nationalities migrated one after another from different places, joining the original tribe who lives here, and formed their settlements. The ancient kingdoms are like pearls, thrived and disappeared at this place — countless legendary ancient kingdoms include the Dali kingdom which has been repeatedly mentioned in Yong Jin’s works, the ancient Dian kingdom which was as famous as the mysterious ancient Loulan, Yelang, the Juting kingdom, the Mengmao kingdom, as well as the Ailao kingdom, Ziqi Kingdom, Guozhanbi Kingdom… It is as if the civilization of this land, is similar to its climate and landscape, which are free and varied, and could not be reduced to a simple unity. However, no matter how different the customs are, people here have the same openness and friendship. When the music is playing, the wine glasses are full, or the festival comes, people can walk around the fire pool or in the riverside woods of the village, holding hands and forming a big circle, singing to each other and dancing, which is like a family with close relationship.
