Let's drop in on the on-going event, which has attracted more than 40 local and overseas bands.

A bamboo Daegeum harmonizes the soft wind brushing through the back mountains with South Korean traditional folk songs "Daegeum" and "Arirang." Joys overflowing as the musicians from South Korea's Ewha Woman's University Band meticulously balance the four-piece instrument ensemble, calling to the harmony of clouds, rain, thunder and wind.

A band member of S Korea Ewha Women's University, said, "The Mid-Autumn Festival is also an important holiday in South Korea. Even though I can't be with my family for the Mid-Autumn dinner, I'm thrilled to perform in such a beautiful place like this."

In stark contrast is the King of the Jungle from South Africa. / With shields and spears, they beckon the forces of nature and some good luck with the tourists.

Here, the language barrier is not a problem. The young woman from the Uzbekistan Youth Dance Troupe communicated with the Chinese Miao ethnic girls through dance and jubilation. Here, music and dance are not created, but inspired by each other and the surroundings.
