Miao lusheng maker and player Mo Ming and singer Li Lingting perform in their home village of Leishan in Guizhou Province, China. In Miao communities, the lusheng is known as a “talking instrument” whose musical tones are meant to mimic the human voice. Both Mo and Li are participants at the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival program China: Tradition and the Art of Living.
