Similar to this method, there is also the record of "Lijiang County" in the late Qing Dynasty: "Reality Yuan Taiki Revolution", his music is said to have Hu Qin, zither, flute, and there are "north and south", "Huang Order "," a book "," parasitic grass "and other names. And the owner invites the music of the music, the name is 'Daile', the tangle, sad moving. It is also sent to send it. "It can be seen that Bai Sandy has been used as a sorrow in the Qing Dynasty.

When the wood is Sheng, Yongning is coming, and the wood is located Sand is to wait,. The folks have made this song, the ancient cloud 'north sandstone'. 'Sweet pear' people, Dianti ... "Mr. Yun Xiao (1827-1887) It is obviously different from the above-mentioned second book.

  • Folk Legend

This type of statement is more, mainly two types. It is one of the gifts that Bai Sandiao gives the Naxi's leader Aliang (one said as a wooden day).

Southern Song Dynasty Zongbao First Year (1253) Mongolian constitutional ordered his brother, that is, the later Yuan Shizu Dubei Qi Qi Dali, Naxi leader Aliang welcomed the Mongolian soldier in Yiba River. .

Soon, Kubsi will break the Dali. On the occasion of the north, for Thanks to Alright, he seals him as "teahamist people", and also gives a lot of gifts. Among them, it includes half team music and half scores.

Mr. Mao Ji Zeng, such as Beijing Scholars, he went in 1962. Lijiang conducted a field visit. According to the survey information, he believes that Baisha's cultivation may be sent to Lijiang when the Yuan Duang Mang army enters the army. Since a part of the Mongolian soldiers will settle in Lijiang for a long time, this music is accompanied by them.

It is based on the description of the two passbooks, as will be as follows: 1. Some Mongolian soldiers stay in Lijiang is a fact. Nowadays, there is a name of a village in the local translation of "The Village of Mongol's lives", and some localities also referred to as descendants of the Mongolian. 2. Playing Bai Sandy Time music work Mongolian buildings, while other civil performance art have no such custom.

3. There is a kind of "Su Gu" in the band of Baisha, and its shape is basically the same as "fire" in the history of Yuanha. The neighborhood of Lijiang and other places in Yunnan have no This instrument.

In addition, Mr. Huangtou, Yunnan scholar, believes that Bai Sassard's beautiful sound is not only a "yuan people", but specifically, it is about the Kunqu in Lijiang in Yunnan in the Ming Dynasty. Its basic form is the north and south.

Huang Mr. Huang mainly has been adopted from the comparison of the name, music form and accompaniment characteristics and the combination of other historical analysis.
