Based on Tu­jia's tra­di­tional folk song "Sister Huangsi" about the love story of a beau­ti­ful Tu­jia girl w thi an out­go­ing and smart young man, it is the first orig­i­nal mu­si­cal that dis­plays the life of the Tu­jia peo­ple.

The mu­si­cal was per­formed in lo­cal di­alect and greatly im­pressed au­di­ences. Zhang Zhen, a univer­sity stu­dent from the univer­sity, said that through the mu­si­cal, he got a deeper un­der­stand­ing of the Tu­jia cul­ture. Another Rus­sian au­di­ence mem­ber Dasha ex­pressed a sim­i­lar opin­ion, say­ing that she was touched by the story be­tween Sister Huangsi and her lover.
