Also called "Sparrow Skipping," this folk dance originated in Fangshan, Jiangning District, Nanjing City. The dance imitates the movements of a sparrow, such as spreading its wings, pecking at grains, sitting on eggs, and so on.
The number of instruments has increased to 12 drums, 12 gongs and 10 cymbals. Colored flags accompany the Fangshan Drum Dance, making the scene more majestic.
