historical origin

According to legend, the flower drum lantern originated in the Xia Dynasty. At the foot of Tushan Mountain, where Dayu met the princes, Dayu married Dayu's daughter, Nujiao, as his wife. Shortly after his marriage, Dayu went out to administer water for the people of the world. Dayu's thirteen years of water control, three times through the door but not into, the girl misses Dayu very much, and every day with her son standing on the hillside looking out to the distance, wishing her husband success in water control and return as soon as possible. Because of her eagerness and sincerity, she turned into a huge stone. Later generations called it "Wangfushi" and "Qimushi". To commemorate them, people built the Yuwang Temple. Every year on March 28 of the lunar calendar, temple fairs were held, gongs and drums were played, dances were performed, and flower drum lanterns were created.

By the Song Dynasty, the flower drum lantern had developed into a relatively systematic art form and occupied a pivotal position in folk dance art. The annual Art Lantern festival, flower drum lantern as a finale play, so known as "decorated lantern" is world-famous.

In the early Qing Dynasty, the rulers paid more attention to culture and the art of flower drum lanterns flourished rapidly. After watching the performance of flower drum lanterns, the playwright Kong Shangren wrote down "Dancer's Ci" one after another: "A pair of red sleeves danced in succession, soft as flowers and drums, like clouds, without a good hand, what's the point on the shoulder?" It depicts the beautiful dancing posture and exquisite and agile skills of the flower drum lantern. After the Opium War, the modern Chinese society was turbulent and turbulent, and the art of flower drum lanterns was affected.

After the Revolution of 1911, the Huaihe River Basin suffered years of confrontation, and the art of flower drum lanterns came to the bottom of the valley.

In the 50 years since the founding of New China, the art of flower drum lanterns has reached its peak, and the cause of flower drum lanterns has made tremendous achievements.

Inheritance and protection

Inheritance value

Flower drum lantern is an excellent folk art in Anhui Province. It is one of the most popular, popular, influential and colorful folk dances in Anhui Province. It is also one of the typical representatives of Han dance. Previous flower drum lantern performances were mostly square performances, and were carried out under the illumination of night flower lanterns, which is also the origin of the name of flower drum lantern. Later it developed into stage performance, making it more ornamental. The performers of flower drum lanterns are usually the working masses, who gather and disperse, and then go home to work in the fields. It is precisely because of this deep mass base that flower drum lanterns have developed rapidly and become a favorite form of entertainment for people on both sides of the Huaihe River.
