A children's group from North China's Inner-Mongolia Autonomous Region called "Five-Color Legend Chorus" is taking the stage in Beijing. Audiences at the Century Theatre found that these kids may be short in stature, but they're not short on talent.

The 40-plus member chorus includes singers from all five tribes of the Mongolian ethnicity. The pint-sized performers range in age from 5 to 13 years old, and bring the audience more than 20 authentic Mongolian songs and dances. Musical accompaniment features the Ma Tou Qin, or horse-head fiddle, a typical of Mongolian music instrument, as well as electronic instruments.

Wang Xiaoji, Director of Mongolian Children's Chorus, said, "These child performers come from remote areas. They are pure and plain. Their talents radiate outward in such a natural way that the audience is impressed by their spontaneity. They are born artists."

Qi Baoligao, Horse-head Fiddle Master, said, "The performance is touching because it tells the history of indigenous Mongolians."

"It felt like being on the Mongolian prairie while they were singing and dancing. That's such a great feeling when you're actually in a crowded city." Audience member said.

Audience member said, "It's really fantastic and powerful. The music is telling enough even I do not understand their language."

Few audience members actually understand the Mongolian language, but that doesn't diminish the impact that these charming children have.
