As early as more than a hundred years ago, during the Jiaqing and Daoguang periods of the Qing Dynasty, the policy of "borrowing land to support the people" was implemented in the Mongolian Banner, which caused a large number of Han immigrants to flow into the quasi-banner, resulting in the situation of mixed Mongolian and Han living, farming and animal husbandry. The immigration of Han people not only opened up the development of agricultural economy, but also promoted the exchange and integration of culture and art between Mongolian and Han banners, especially the folk song art. Thus, the "vast tune" of quasi-banners came into being.

But there is another way of saying about the name of the place: at the end of the Qing Dynasty, the mixed Mongolian and Han living here in Junggar had become a climate, often playing and singing together. At first, the Mongolian people sang Mongolian folk songs and the Han people sang Shanxi and Shaanxi folk songs.

If the tenor in the usual sense can reach 8 degrees high, then Qifulin can be called a supertenor, because he can easily reach 11 degrees high. His long-lasting iron voice and plain and unadorned performing skills make us have to lament the tenacious vitality and extraordinary artistic charm of the original and native traditional folk songs.
