China is a united multi-ethnic nation of 56 ethnic groups, with the Han ethnic group as the largest one. Although accounting for only 8.4% of China's total population and scattering mainly in south-west of China, people of the 55 ethnic minorities are born to be excellent singers and dancers.

China Nationalities Song & Dance Troupe (CNSDT) is made up of 4 professional ethnic performing groups from Gansu and Yunnan provinces. The 25 actors and actresses belong to eight different ethnic groups, namely, Tibetan, Miao, Yugu, Hui, Yi, Dai, Yao and Hani. Many of them are famous ethnic artists in China. Ms. Wang Jiamin, chief artistic inspector of the troupe, is a national A-level dance choreographer. Chief inspector Wanmazhaxi is one of the main directors of Tibetan dances in China. Artistic director Anjuhua enjoys the title of "dancer of Yugu nationality". Zongyongzhuoma, one of the best known Tibetan soprano, has won the first prize in the national ethnic vocal music competition and was granted the name "Golden Phoenix in Snow Mountain". The troupe has given performances in many countries in Asia, Europe and North America, and earned favorable comments at home and abroad.
