Australia-China Friendship Society (Vic.) “Peoples and Life” Chinese Movie Show Feature Film Turpan Love Songs Music is the outpouring of soul. For dec- ades, generations of Chinese people understand the unique customs and the music style by means of classic Xinjiang folk songs such as “Turpan’s Grapes Are Ripening”, “Raise Your Red Veil”, “Up the Half moon Goes” and “Alamban” and so on. While enjoying aesthetic pleasure, Chinese people appreciate abundant emotions, which are either passionately persistent or playfully humorous. Through the smartly combined presentation of four love songs in series, this film shows the two generation’s emotional pursuit of two ordinary Uygur families dwelling in Turpan region. It also shows how the traditional and modern ways of lives are integrated in ethnic inhabited Xinjiang.
