This music includes the Big Drum and Gong, the Small Drum and Gong, the Dizi Set Drum and Gong and Su Drum and Gong Ensembles. So far, there is no accurate historical data to know how long the history of Chaozhou Drums Music is. However, in the form of the Drum and Wind Music of the Han and Tang Dynasties, in the making of brass gongs, we find similarities to the current Chaozhou Drums Music.In Shaanxi Province the Xian Drums Music is a traditional instrumental performance that has been preserved for generations among the people in the ancient city of Xian.
