The Yellow River Boatmen (Excerpt)
The 20 young drummers of the award-winning Hong Kong troupe Refiner Drums present a rousing, physical performance evoking the power of the Yellow River and the courage and strength of the boatmen as they work together to navigate the waves.
Recorded at the Xiqu Centre in 2021, the striking performance showcases an excerpt from The Yellow River Boatmen – a rousing piece inspired by the traditional heritage drumming style of Jiangzhou, that was written by the Shanxi Jiangzhou Drum Troupe and notated by Zhang Li.
