Surrounded by mountains, between the border of Yunnan and Sichuan Province in Southwest China, the Mosuo people have lived on the banks of Lugu Lake for over a thousand years, keeping a matrilineal tradition, in which women head the household. Within this unique background, the Mosuo have been encouraged by the state to develop tourism since the early 1990s. As a result, Mosuo society has started opening to the world and attracting increasing worldwide attention as "A Kingdom of Goddesses." In the summer of 2004, Chinese filmmaker, accompanied American scholar Carol Bliss and Mosuo writer Lamu Gatusa to collect traditional Mosuo folk songs. From tourist-ridden villages to remote mountain hamlets, the film resonates with the singing of different generations of Mosuo people in a transitional period under the influence of tourism and pop culture.
