The Dance of Yi People - 彝族舞曲

Dance of the Yi People, sometimes also called Dance of the Yi Tribe or Yi Dance is one of the most popular solo compositions for the pipa, a four-stringed pear-shaped fretted lute used as one of the primary traditional musical instruments of China. Unlike the martial-sounding Ambushed From All Sides, the other most widely performed solo pipa piece, Dance of the Yi People is predominantly lyrical in character.

Dance of the Yi People was composed in 1960 by the Chinese composer Wang Huiran, presumably based on traditional music of the Yi people of southern China.
