Historical Origin

Changsha Tanci: Once the darling of the city

Changsha Tanci was formed in Tongzhi period of Qing Dynasty. At the beginning, when singing "Liu Ling drunk" in 1863, Zhang Zhi, the ancestor of Changsha Tan Ci, was described in detail in Tang Yuan Wenlu by Yang Enshou, a dramatist of the Qing Dynasty. "Singing"Liu Ling drunk"with"Tan Yuan Wenlu", which is vivid.

During the 1911 Revolution, many progressive intellectuals used Changsha Tanci to propagate democratic revolutionary ideas. It uses very popular and vivid lyrics to display painfully the urgent situation in China and to stimulate the patriotic enthusiasm of the people.

In 1904, after Changsha was established as a commercial port, tea houses occupied the first place in the province; after the War of Resistance Against Japan, there were still more than 100 tea houses in Changsha. Changsha people sit in teahouses, not only have the temptation of fragrant tea, the enjoyment of beauty, but also enjoy chatting and listening to books. At that time, there were forty or fifty rappers in Changsha City, with more than 20 teahouses set up, two daily and evening performances, each audience of 100 people. Among all the bookstores, the Fire Palace bookstore is the most famous. The storytellers and martial artists perform in the Fire Palace. After 1940, there are three bookstores, which can accommodate more than 200 listeners.

In the mid-1920s, Changsha artists Zhou Shouyun and Shu Sanhe entered the tea house to "sit in a shed" to tell stories. After the 1950s, it was named Changsha Tanci.

Changsha Tanci declined rapidly after the "Cultural Revolution". Only in the late 1970s and early 1980s did Changsha Tanci regain its new life. At that time, there were still more than 20 Tanci artists left in Changsha. In order to rescue and protect Changsha Tanci, Changsha City has listed Changsha Tanci as a protected historical and cultural heritage, and allocated special funds for rescue and collation.

Hard journey

Changsha Tanci is a kind of urban folk art. It originates from Taoist sentiment. It is also called Changsha Taoist sentiment because it is spoken and sung in Changsha dialect. Popular in Changsha, Yiyang, Xiangtan and other places, has a history of more than 200 years. In Tangyuan Wenlu written by Yang Enshou, the Qing Dynasty dramatist, Zhang Zhi, the ancestor of Changsha Tanci, wrote about Liu Ling's drunkenness in 1863 (the second year of Tongzhi). During the 1911 Revolution, many progressive intellectuals used Changsha Tanci to propagate democratic revolutionary ideas. Such as Chen Tianhua's scattered rhyme and Tanci work "Meng Huitou", which had a strong impact at that time.

Major Artists

In the eyes of Changsha people, Peng Yankun is the same as Changsha Tanci, and he is known as the "living fossil of Changsha Tanci". From the 1940s to the 1960s, Peng Yankun performed in the Palace of Fire, and the art of playing CI became more and more mature. He sang not only the traditional biography of Yue Fei, but also the ancient city of fighting wildfire and spring wind, and the King Kong of Fire. Holding a yueqin, wearing a pair of sunglasses, holding Changsha dialect in the hall of the Palace of Fire, accompanied by banyun to talk about the past and present, has become the classic image of Peng Yankun and the image of Changsha Tanci.

Quyi is too difficult to be successful

Among Peng Yankun's apprentices, the soldier is the most famous. According to the soldiers, Peng Lao's accomplishments in Changsha Tanci are unprecedented, and there will be no future. In the process of learning with Peng Lao, I have learned the basic rules of Changsha language and its phonetic characteristics, which is also of great significance to the tempering of cross talk art.

artistic characteristics

Changsha began to sing lyrics on drums and boards, and later developed into a solo piano rapper; later, two people sang: one accompanied by a solo piano and one by a solo piano.

Fishing drum drum board and small money festival, two people singing together. In the early days, they all sang for street people, mostly about "exhortation" and short stories. After 1927, they began to enter bookstores and teahouses and sit in the shed to talk and sing long stories.

Quben prose and rhyme are interrelated, and the combination of rap and singing is mainly composed of rhyme singing. There are two kinds of words: blank and rhyme.

Later, it absorbed folk minors and local opera singing tunes, and became a combination of plate style change and music plate combination.

It has a little singing voice and a lazy taste. One is the Zhou School, represented by Zhou Shouyun, whose performance is full of lyrics and powerful singing. There is also the Shu school, represented by Shu Sanhe, whose performance and singing are orthodox but rigid. Peng Yankun's rap has absorbed the essence of all schools, and has incorporated some of the singing styles of Hunan opera, flower drum melody, Huangmei Opera and Beijing Opera into rap, and he himself is also known as "living fossil of Changsha TAPPI". Previously, Changsha's Tanci included flat tune, happy tune, soft tune, sad tune, big sad tune, angry tune, immortal tune and other singing tunes. Peng Yankunbo adopted many advantages, melted and applied them, and created his own "abusive tune", which made the form of Changsha's Tanci more flexible and lasting.

Inheritance Significance

Quyi is being tested

Changsha Tanci has a combination of speaking, singing and rhyming. There are two kinds of words: blank and rhyme. There is also a short passage to the end. In its early stage, its aria was relatively simple, mainly with plate-style changes. In the process of development, it gradually absorbed some folk minor tunes and opera arias, and became a melody form combining plate-style changes with the combination of Qupai. There are "eight boards and nine chambers" and "nine boards and thirteen chambers". The short passages in Changsha Tanci traditional program are called "Xiaoben". They include "Lin Ying sighs to himself", "Xiangzi Shitu", "Baochai Ji" and so on.

Changsha Tanci is a kind of urban folk art, which once flourished at the beginning of the last century. However, after the Cultural Revolution, it declined rapidly. Today, all the history and culture of Changsha Tanci are shouldered by Peng Yankun.

It is undeniable that Changsha Tanci has declined. "Material competition is natural selection, so is Quyi." Changsha opera once flourished with the help of the Opera Hall after its development. At that time, how did Changsha play CI unexpectedly enter the opera hall? The strength is too thin, coupled with the impression that the singing hall is a noisy place, and Changsha Tanci needs to calm down, closed eyes slowly charming.
