Listen to the Hexi Baoju sung for thousands of years. Hexi Baojuan is a kind of traditional folk chanting popular literature developed on the basis of Dunhuang Bianwen, Sutras and Sutras of Song Dynasty. Baojuan was produced in large numbers in the Ming and Qing dynasties and prevailed in many parts of the country. In the vast rural areas of Hexi, Gansu, Baojuan still has a strong vitality. In 2006, Hexi Baojuan was included in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list. Hexi Baojuan has four types: Buddhism, historical stories, myths and legends, and fables. The content reflects the social life of the people and the themes condemn rebellion and cruelty, and promote filial piety and good deeds. The main form of Hexi Baojuan is the combination of rhyme and white in the process of speaking and singing. There is talk and singing. The main method is to attract the audience to actively participate in the singing. The vernacular is a kind of performance technique adopted by the readers to narrate the plot of the story, explain the development of events, explain the relationship between the characters, and point out the time and place. It is expressed in the form of "speaking" or "speaking". The rhyme is used to convey praise and criticism of good and evil, promote the development of the story, express love and hatred, and set off the atmosphere. It is expressed in the form of "chanting" or "singing". The melody of the rhyme style incorporates various tunes, and also adds some Liangzhou folk songs, such as "Cry Five Geng", "Lotus Falling", "Ten Persuading People" and so on. According to the survey, there are about 30 volumes of Liangzhou Baojuan scripts, most of which are woodcut and manuscripts. There were also some mimeographs in the early 1980s. Jiuquan Baojuan has collected more than 70 lyric tunes and vocals, and more than 70 collections (including records) of more than 140 books. Due to the development of the rural economy and the changes in living customs, few people now take the initiative to hold activities of chanting and singing Baojuan. Nowadays, most people who study papers are people over 70 years old. With the gradual passing of this group of people in the future, Hexi Baojuan will face a crisis of extinction.
