China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By WEI HUANG in Van­cou­ver For China Daily

The unique melodies of Mon­go­lian mu­sic con­jure images of the beau­ti­ful land­scape of the In­ner Mon­go­lia prairie and pro­vide a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing about Mon­go­lians, known for their pas­sion­ate, hos­pitable and gen­er­ous char­ac­ter.

On Feb. 14, the Rich­mond River Rock Theatre in Van­cou­ver was wit­ness to a grand feast of In­ner Mon­go­lian style. Along with an un­par­al­leled danc­ing style and nat­u­rally un­re­strained melodies, the au­di­ence ex­pe­ri­enced the emo­tions of the vast prairie.

Bo Lee, who plays the horse-headed lute, along with the well-known Mon­go­lia singing group Lucky Three, and the popular prairie per­former Lit­tle Prince Uda­wood pro­vided the en­ter­tain­ment.

This event was hosted by the Canadian Al­liance of Chi­nese As­so­ci­a­tions and United Global Chi­nese Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion of Canada and or­ga­nized by Har­mony Cul­ture Me­dia Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Ltd.

Pro­ceeds from the per­for­mance were to be do­nated to the Canadian In­ter­na­tional Ed­u­ca­tion As­sis­tance Foun­da­tion to help poor chil­dren and or­phans from China.
