THe unique environment of China's far western province has bestowed on the Dolan people a distinctive culture, which is reflected in the sound of this special band. The ensemble creates a trance-like atmosphere with the use of traditionol instruments and a chorus of their own enrapturing voices. Audiences will be drawn in as the musicians beat hand drums, and perform the traditional qalun dulcimer, the Dolan rawap (a plucked instrument)and the Dolan ghijak (a vertically-held fiddle) lt's a unique, passionate folk music - not to be missed.
