The Ox Fighting
The Ox Fighting the Tiger is a drum duo with a striking name and a strong character, in which yin and yang are exposed in the technique. The musical vocabulary is largely drawn from large-scale chegu style ceremonial drumming, and through interlocking and opposed drum patterns.
Through three stages of “meeting”, “playing” and “doing battle”, The music reveals to the audience the ox’s ferocious strength and the tiger’s martial valor.
