Status and learning among the Shifan music troupe in Putian
This study investigates the contemporary state and learning processes within the Shifan music troupes of Putian, Fujian, China. By exploring the multifaceted roles and adaptations of traditional Shifan music, the research uncovers its significance in various contexts. From temple fairs to ancestral worship ceremonies, funerals, and mass entertainment events, Shifan music serves as a cultural bridge between heritage and modernity. The study underscores the importance of learning, instruction, and education in preserving this musical tradition, with emphasis on the "music club" and "music hall" as vehicles for collective learning and oral transmission as a conduit for experiential knowledge. Through family inheritance and private art teaching, the essence of Shifan music persists, reflecting its dynamic evolution and cultural enrichment.
