PHOTO HUNTERS: MUSIC

During the 7th month of the lunar calendar,
the Chinese celebrates the Hungry Ghost Festival.
This is the time where there will be lots of prayers and MUSIC Concerts.
Before I proceed with my MUSIC photos, this is what they are praying.


MUSIC01

Initially, they will start with Chinese Opera,
with traditional Chinese MUSIC.


MUSIC02

There are times when they will be singing oldies
and playing MUSIC such as jazz, blues or even rock & roll.

MUSIC03

Most of the time, it would be the fast type of MUSIC
with girls performing in sexy outfits.

MUSIC04

Maybe you would like to have a view on the video below
On how they dance to the rhythm of the MUSIC.

It's weird how tradition is now mix with the modern world - who thought one can celebrate such a traditional thing with half dress dancers?
