We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Shunyi Zeng Village Drum

Zeng village drum (曾庄大鼓) is a kind of Chinese ancient folk music, prevailing in Shunyi district. It is said that Zeng village drum was introduced in Shunyi in Ming and Qing Dynasties following the immigrants from Henan and Shanxi provinces. Together with Zeng village, Wanzhuangzi village, Yangqiao village and Xinglongzhuang village all have drum association, but then the drum in Zeng village is much bigger. it is one part of Beijing culture.


















Zeng village drum once enjoyed a widespread reputation in history. It performed every year in Sanhe Temple Fair (15th on the March Lunar Month), Yabingshan Temple Fair (from 1st to 15th on the April Lunar Month) and Malinshan Temple Fair (27th on April Lunar Mounth). In early Mingguo Dynasty, Zeng village drum once was invited to perform for the birthday part of Tang Yushu, the head of Sanhe county. 12 drums were layed aside in 12 rooms separately. Although they weren’t placed together, drum rhythm was regular and in order. From then on, Zeng village drum became renowned.

Zeng village drum has a diameter of 60-70 centimetres, a height of 40 centimetres and a weight of 22.5 kg. The drum was carried in front of chest and hammered with one single mallet. The traditional team is made up of 12 drums, accompanied with sideman and standard-bearer, about over 20 people in total. At present, the team of Zeng village drum contains 10 performers at the age of 40 years. It is sad that the Zeng village drum is hard to pass on.
