Jiayi Village in Xinhe County, northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, is famous for making traditional musical instruments. “Jiayi” means “residents living along the road” in Uygur language, as all the houses in this village were built along the main road. There are more than 106 households in the village that make musical instruments of ethnic groups, including the Dutar, Surnay, Qushtar, Tambur, Rawab and Dombra. China has designated the craft of making Uygur musical instruments as a national intangible cultural heritage.
