In the Heights – A performance at Kunstverein Tiergarten Berlin, Thursday, 22 May 2008, together with Yang Zemin, musican from Lijiang, China.
Long, long time ago,
Our ancestors moved down from the mountains.
Yet ninety boys and seventy girls still stayed there,
For living together without the control by their parents.
Many messages were sent from home to ask the kids move down to the village.
Although someone did so,
Others were still there.
So, ninety boys
and seventy girls
live in the mountains.
Ninety boys and seventy girls live in the mountains.
(Traditional Naxi Song)
