This song is full of vitality and has become one of the representatives of Taiwanese culture, and the listener can experience the uprightness and strength of the high mountain, and feel the optimism and strength of the people living here.
This piece of music was not only popular in Taiwan and China, but also brought to Japan through Teresa Teng’s concert. The beautiful tunes and the ethnic customs full of Alishan’s artistic conception make the Japanese also fascinated by it.

About Shen Yun Performing Arts
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts is the world‘s premier Chinese classical dance and classical music troupe. Over the years, Shen Yun has absorbed and cultivated many of the world‘s top artists, revitalizing and promoting the real, almost vanished traditional Chinese culture in the form of classical art.
From the ancient times of the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors to the magnificent Tang Dynasty, from the prosperity of the Song Dynasty to the elegance of the Qing Dynasty, the five thousand years of Chinese civilization has a long history. This is a picture full of myths, legends and heroic epics – courage and sacrifice, integrity and loyalty, kindness and virtue, the story of the stars is the inheritance of five thousand civilizations.
In ancient China, it was called “Shenzhou”, and people and gods used to be together on this land. Music, medicine, calligraphy, clothing, characters… God has passed on the rich culture to the people here. For thousands of years, the beliefs of Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism have been the foundation of society. The Son of Heaven ruled in accordance with Heaven, and the people respected Heaven, believed in God, and valued virtue and did good deeds.
Over the past few decades, the CCP regime has regarded the traditional culture of reverence for the heaven and the virtue as a threat to its existence, and through political movements such as the Cultural Revolution, the traditional beliefs have been systematically uprooted and the legacy of five thousand years of divinely-inherited culture has been eliminated. Nearly destroyed.
In 2006, a group of top Chinese traditional artists came to New York with the same desire: to revive the true Chinese divine culture and promote it all over the world. And just like that, Shen Yun was born.
Every season, we present a new set of programs in top theaters around the world, such as Lincoln Center in New York, Kennedy Center in Washington DC, London Coliseum; our Symphony Orchestra has performed at Carnegie Hall.
Millions of live audience members, including the most famous actors, top fashion designers, government officials, royals, and celebrities have all attended Shen Yun’s pomp. We look forward to seeing you too.
