The Quanfeng Lantern

The Quanfeng Lantern, originally from Quanfeng, Xiushui county of Jiangxi province, is an art performance that combines lanterns, opera and dancing.

The main feature is the lantern team performance, which has a strong folk-custom flavor. During the Spring Festival period, the lanterns are decorated in the village, and performers sing from the first day to the fifteenth day from morning to night. In addition, lantern teams also perform during folk holidays, birthdays, and weddings.

The Quanfeng Lantern has eight lamps, and the performers have eight skills. The talking and singing are all done using the local Quanfeng dialect. Quanfeng has over 20 lantern teams with performers from 16 to 70 years old. The lantern is popular in Quanfeng.

The lantern teams live in remote regions and the dense forests. The performance is so simple that it can be performed anytime and anywhere, bringing happiness and luck to the people in the mountainous region.
