Axi Tiaoyue Festival also called Axi Pople Dancing under the Moon. Axitiaoyue, a traditional dance and music of Axi branch of the Yi nationality, is also called ¡°Tiaoyue¡±, which literally means ¡°to dance with clapping hands¡±. 

Generally speaking, the folk dance originates from labor, living, sacrifice ceremony, wedding and marriage. It is true to Axitiaoyue. As far as I know, there are at least three legends about Axitiaoyue.


The first tells us that long time ago, a big fire broke out in the place where the ancestor of Axi lived. The fire was so big that it lasted for nine days and nine nights. In the process of extinguishing the fire, the Axi people jumped alternatively on one leg to avoid getting burnt. As a result, the fire was conquered at last.


The second legend tells us that the ancestor of Axi just slashed and burned to plant crops, and when they are laboring, in order not to be burnt by the ember, they had to jump on alternative leg.

The third tells us a story of escaping an arranged marriage. A girl named Lilagua, on her way to escape an arranged marriage, met a boy named Ziyineng, and fell in love with each other. Since they had nothing to witness their love, they made a bonfire in the open air and danced around the fire to declare their marriage. I personally prefer to the first legend. But whichever is mentioned, it has something to do with happiness and love.The present Axitiaoyue, recreated by artists, fully displays Axi¡¯s labor and living as well as their frank character and delicate emotion.
