The Naxi Ancient Music Performance combines many ancient musical elements including that of Baisha Music, Dongjing Music, Huangjing Music (royal music), Tang Poetry, and Song Poetry. It is played with a variety of ethnic instructions and has a solemn and elegant quality to it. Naxi Ancient Music has three main points of interest: one is the ancient music itself, a second is the old instruments used, and third is the fact that all the musicians themselves are very old. In this way, it could be said that the Naxi Music Performance actually has "three olds" (i.e. old music, old instruments, old people). Listeners who hear this "three old" music will be able to appreciate the profoundness of the Naxi culture through their music.
