Folk songs are part of the invaluable cultural heritage of a nation. From labour chants to love ditties, operatic tunes, and even songs sung in the mountains and fields, the folk music of Northern Shaanxi is known for its resonant, hearty, bold and unconstrained qualities. Often composed of beautiful lyrics that convey emotional depth, the songs express the spirit, thoughts and feelings of its people. Northern Shaanxi folk music dates back seven millennia; it was developed and nurtured by the Shaanxi people and remains, to this day, deeply rooted in their lives.

Be transported to the rich plains of Shaanxi in a captivating evening of Northern Shaanxi folk songs with rising star Wang Er Ni. Lose yourself in her emotive vocal renditions as the Shaanxi native performs familiar folk tunes such as Going to the West Gate, Red Lilies Crimson and Bright, accompanied by Ding Yi Music Company with conductor Dr Tay Teow Kiat.
