Jia Hao, which means "grand singing and dancing performance" in Chinese, is a kind of collective dance, usually performed in the Tibetan New Year and major festivals every year. Men, women and children in Danga Township of Saga County will perform Jia Harmony and pass on from generation to generation. The Jia Harmony of Danga Township is well-known in Tibet.

historical origin

The historical origin of Jia Hao has three views: one is the dance to celebrate the victory of the war; the other is the dance to celebrate the victory of the song and dance competition; and the third is the dance to celebrate Princess Wencheng's entering Tibet in the Tang Dynasty. The third argument is more widely circulated and accepted by ordinary people.

artistic characteristics

The actors who performed in harmony wore costumes made of silk and satin, mainly red and yellow, showing a noble and elegant temperament. They wore a large, round and tasseled cap, and swayed constantly during the performance. They had long waist knives, horsewhips, knives and chopsticks in the scabbard of knives. The actors'movements in dancing are very rough and bold, showing the strong and brave character of the Tibetan nationality. Correspondingly, actresses dress up more gently, wearing traditional Tibetan women's clothes, wearing various Tibetan accessories, holding Hada, singing and dancing. Jia Xiong takes the blue sky as the curtain and the earth as the stage. It is full of a kind of original ecological aesthetic feeling. It seems that it is really pleasant to watch.
