Daniel will show you the many embellishments you can apply to just three chords (G, C, and D) – from the very simple to playing bass and percussion parts on the ‘ukulele all at once!

Nomadic Music Festival

July 3 - 4  2015

Hulun Buir Grasslands

more details

China's first nomadic culture themed and the only outdoor music festival of Inner Mongolia will have its grand opening in Hulun Buir Grassland — the fountainhead of Mongolia — on July 3.

The festival will last for two days.

The nomadic music festival is designed to allow the music to retain its original simplicity, so that visitors can appreciate the authenticity and simplicity of music in the vast prairie. Based on this theme, a stage for traditional ethnic culture and a stage for modern culture will be built, to demonstrate the profound history and culture of China's Northern peoples and pop music of different styles from around the world.
