A typical village outside of Chengxian (1,36 MB)

The worst soprano ever (1,81 MB)
Unfortunately, perhaps the worst soprano ever...We ran into this song group on the street one evening in Zhu Hai. It was painful to listen to, but hilarious! However, the Chinese people observing seemed to be enjoying the performance.
