The mountains of "Da Liangshan" in Sichuan, China, are the home of various ethnic groups including the Tibetans and the Yi-Nuosu but also the less famous Flower Hmongs also called Hua Miao in Mandarin Chinese. They originally come from the Guizhou province (which still number 9 million of Miao) but moved in the 19th century in the region of Muli.
They do not follow Tibetan Buddhism like most of their neighbors but their own animist belief system.
Their main music instrument is the mouthorgan (lusheng 芦笙 in Chinese), the hulusheng being the main mouthorgan used for entertainment whereas the 'long tubes lusheng mounted on a wooden resonance box' is here used only for funerals.
