Dance of the Yao People
is one of the best known and most popular Chinese instrumental compositions of the second half of the 20th century. It was composed collaboratively by Liu Tieshan and Mao Yuan in 1952, inspired by the long drum dance, a form of traditional festival music of the Yao people of southern and southwest China. It was premiered in Beijing in 1953.
In the late 20th century, the song was used as the basis for several pop songs, in both China and the United States. The first 18 notes of the 1998 song "When You Believe," as recorded by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, are based on "Dance of the Yao People
," although the Chinese composers of the original work were not credited.
