Abstract (Summary)

The Daizu is one of ethnic nationalities of China. They live mainly in the Xishuanbanna Daizu Autonomous Prefecture and the Dehong Jingpozu-Daizu Autonomous Prefecture of Yunnan Province in Southwest China. Outside of China, they also distribute over several Southeast Asian countries, including Burma, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. Dai's religious culture is Theravada Buddhism. Dai people once practiced many religious ceremonies and festivals such as the Varsika festival and Sankan festival. Owing to political-economic reasons, majority of these religious ceremonies and festivals have become secular activities. The Varsika festival, however, in still surviving as a purely religious festival, and the rich contents of its ritual music have been well preserved.

This dissertation consists the following: (1) a brief description of the author's field work experience and the state of research in this subject area; (2) an ethnographic account of ritual music of the Dai festivals; (3) an analysis of the music repertory and regional stylistic traits of the Varsika ritual festival; (4) discussion of the diachronic relationship between the Varsika ritual tradition and an ancient ritual music; (5) an investigation of the culture relations among Buddhist ritual music of minorities such as Blan, Dean and Acan. This leads to a discussion of the transtegional musical elements of Dai Buddhist ritual music, as well as its multi-layered identify; (6) a analysis of the process and factors of change from the historical geographical tie with Burmese Buddhist ritual tradition to the present economic tie with Thai Buddhist ritual tradition and; (7) a discussion of influence exerted to the Varsika ritual tradition by contemporary social and economic modernization.

Studies on Taoist ritual music "Du Jie" as practised among the Yao nationality at Shicai village, Yunnan Province, China

by Yang, Xiao-xun, Ph.D., The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), 1998, 168 pages; AAT 9913217


Abstract (Summary)

The main subject of research of this dissertation is the Taoist Du Fie ritual and the ritual music of the Yao nationality, the Landian Branch of Yao who reside in the Shicai village at Dongpo township, Funing country, within the Wenshan Autonomous District Yunnan Province of China.

This dissertation explores the historical ties between the Taoism of Han Nationality and the two Schools of Taoism, Shi and Dao as practiced amongst the people of Yao Nationality.

The author did field-work observations and described the entire process of the Taoist ritual amongst the Yao people, the environment within which the ritual was formed, and the use of music during the ritual.

After analyzing the Taoist ritual music, the author concludes that there exist two different types of music in ritual which is related to rites of passage, namely, the Ran (Simple) Singing style and the Fu (repetitive) Singing style. Comparison between these singing styles and the folk songs and Taoist music of Han Nationality have been made. The author found that the Ran singing style have various connections (or resemblance) with the folk songs and Taoist music of Han Nationality over certain regions of China. Such links (or resemblance) may stem from the close ties between the forms and contents of Taoism of the Han and Yao peoples. Throughout its long historic development, Taoism among the Yan people has adopted the form and content of the Taoist ritual and music of Han people. The Yao people have integrated their ethnic musical culture and belief into their religious activities and ritual music. As a result, the two different types of music have co-existed in Yao people's Taoist music.
