Hi, :P

Re: Chôan-chiu(Quanzhou) Hokkien Culture & Lantern Festival

Interesting video on the thousand years of Hokkien Cultural Heritage in Chôan-chiu (Quanzhou), Fujian. Include the traditional imperial nanyin music & singing, flowers tradition, marionette, puppet shows, lion dance, dragon dance, costumes, dining traditions, old maritime port, house walls from sea shells and lantern festival to celebrate Chap Goh Meh or end of Spring Festival (Chinese Lunar New Year Festival).

The Hokkiens’ were spoken by the many local Chôan-chiu residents. It sounds very similar to our Amoy Hokkien and Taiwanese. Seem like the local Hokkien Culture and Language is still alive despite the encroachment of the official Putonghua (Mandarin).

Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou)

In older English works, Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou) name may appear as Chinchew, Chinchu, or Zayton. Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou) was established in 718 during the Tang Dynasty (618–907). In those days, Guangzhou was China's greatest seaport, but this status would be surpassed later by Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou).

During the Song Dynasty (960–1279) and Yuan Dynasty (1279–1368), Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou) was one of "the World's Largest Seaports", hosting a large community of foreign-born inhabitants from across the Eurasian world.

Today, a number of relics related to that era are preserved and exhibited in the Quanzhou Overseas Relations Museum. A particularly important exhibit is the so-called Quanzhou ship, a seagoing junk that sunk some time after 1272, and was recovered in 1973–74.[3]

Due to its reputation, Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou) has been called the starting point of "the Maritime Silk Road". The Arabic name of the city of Chôan-chiu 泉州 (Quanzhou), is known as Zayton (alternately spelt Zaitun or Zaytun), the word satin would be coined. Zayton is also the word for olive and the symbol of peace in the Arabic and Persian languages. Quanzhou may have been given this title by the Muslims in honour of fact that it was a cultural melting pot at the time due to the trade culture.

In The Travels of Marco Polo, Quanzhou (called Zayton, T'swan-Chau, or Chin-Cheu) was listed as the departure point for Marco Polo's expedition to escort the 17-year-old Mongol princess bride Kököchin to her new husband in the Persian Ilkhanate.

謝銘祐

This singer-songwriter from Tainan, 謝銘祐 recently won the 2013 Golden Melody Award for the Best Male Singer under the Taiwanese (Hokkien) Language Song Category. An unexpected winner. This video is the story of his life hardship and financial problems he face yet he continue to strive to achieve this success.

In fact this year winner for the Men and Women for the Taiwanese (Hokkien/Minnan) song categories was a big surprise. Actually it is the good thing for newcomer to win Hokkien song contests to promote the popularity of the Taiyu/Hokkien songs to the world. Congratulations to both the new winner of the Taiwanese (Minnan) Song Categories of the 2013 Golden Melody Awards.
