Prof. Xuan Ke

President of Dayan Naxi Ancient Music Association.
Folk musician Xuan Ke was born in Lijiang, in the Yunan Province, in 1930. He is of the Tibet-Naxi nationality. He devoted his youth to studying music but recognition was slow to come, he achieved it only comparatively late in life. His multi-ethnic background has given him a wider perspective than is common in multi-racial questions and his knowledge of many languages is of great help here.

Folk Musician, Xuan Ke was born in Lijiang, Yunnan Province in 1930. He is of the Tibet-Naxi nationality. As a young man, he studied music most of his life. "A great man who was found success in his latter years" is common evaluation of him in academic circles. His multi-ethnic background makes him clever and ambitious. He speaks many languages, and he is able to understand and think about questions from many different ethnic viewpoints. After experiencing many ups and downs, he has formed a positive attitude towards life and acquired an enduring thirst for knowledge.

Though already 70 years old, Mr. Xuan Ke is still highly spirited. He has visited many universities to study and lecture, including London and Oxford Universities, the China Central Conservatoire, the China National Academy of Music, Sichuan Academy of Music, Yunnan Institute of Nationalities, Yunnan University, and the Music Association of Guangdong Province. The subjects of his lectures include Study on Music's Origin and Methodology, Civilization and Culture of the Naxi Nationality, Study on Dongjing Music of Lijiang and Study on Baishaxi Music. He has published several theses, including "Music and Dance Originated from the Fearof Our Ancestors", "Chorus Proceeds Unison", and "The Ancestors of the Naxi are not Qiang".
