Established in April 2012, the Zhouwo Music Town is a celebration of musical instruments and musical culture. It is the first creative cultural tourist base in China that relates to the musical instrument industry. The town is rated as one of the National Top Ten “Charming New Villages”.
In order to create this theme, transformation and reconstruction had to be carried out on traditional residences to infuse them with the musical elements evident today. Given those charms, anddiversified recreational and leisure sites such as music bars, cafes, music boutiques, expert villas, music studios and small inns, music experts from both home and abroad are attracted to live in town for long and steady periods of time.
Each year, multiple sessions of the Maitian Music Festival andthe Guitar Cultural Festival, as well as national and international music culture exchange festivals, offer outstanding benefits in Zhouwo. For example, the Lute International Music Summer Camp held there each summer and winter provides children with a chance to enjoy world-quality education without going abroad.
