 Fou,a traditional Chinese percussion, has a history of three millenniums.This ancient instrument was mentioned in one of China's oldest text I Ching (BC1046--BC771).Fou,originally used as wine vessels, was pottery ware in ancient times; the name Fou comes from the inscription on them.The trasformation from vessel to precussion happened when people striked Fou and sing after rounds of drinking in their feast thousands of years ago.

In the openning ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, 2008 drummers beat line after line of Fou, chanting as they struck,"Friends have come from afar, how happy we are."
Fou performances fully express the power and charm of traditional Chinese percussion. The high-energy rhythm combined with unique costume and instrument will absolutely leave the audiences great impressions.
