Date:2020-05-18

    吉祥鼓又名转转响,制作于明末清初的安阳县东部村庄。制作精良美观,手持摇起,转转发响,清脆的响声如“蝉”、“蝈蝈”,使人遐想痴迷。

    鼓体取洹水滩土烧制成土陶,形状为中空两端透气。上端粘上吉祥鼓膜,用明五彩纸装饰鼓体。一根棉线以鼓膜中间穿过连接马尾,马尾活套在竹签上(长约10厘米),马尾与竹签连接处点上松香,虽小而精致。随着小鼓不断的转动“蝉”、“蝈蝈”声响越来越清亮、愉耳。让人不断惊叹:“它是怎么发出声音呢?”


    Ji Xiang Drum—an Inheritance of Chinese Folk Culture

    Ji Xiang drum, also known as Zhuan Zhuan Xiang, began to be made in a village east of Anyang County in Anyang City,dating back to a period of Late Ming and Early Qing. It was elaborately designed with nice look. It could make sound like the crying of cicada or grasshopper by shaking and spinning it around in the air,arousing fascination and imaginary thinking of people.

    The drum is small but exquisite. Its main body is made from clay of Huan River and then burned into the shape of hollowed column with no top and bottom. After that, the body part is wrapped and decorated with bright colored paper and the top is covered and pasted with Mo (a thin paper material of bamboo fiber), through the centre of which is a cotton thread with one end tied to Mo and one end knotted with a string of horsetail (about 15 cm long), the other end of which is connected and twined onto the apical portion of a bamboo stick. It is about 10 cm long, so that one could hold it in hand. At last, rosin is put on to connective point of the horsetail and bamboo stick. When people spin it around, the drum could make the sound that becomes clearer and more pleasant as it is continuingly moving around in the air. That is so amazing that one may ask himself:” How could it be made by our ancestors far away from now?”
