Oriental Song and Dance Ensemble was established on January 13, 1962, under the auspices of the late Premier Zhou Enlai (18981976) and Vice-Premier Chen Yi(1901-1972). It has always the mission of this ensemble to introduce traditional Chinese music and dance to the world and, at the same time, to present exotic performances to people at home. During the past 40 years, the troupe has travelled across the country and has visited more than 70 countries and regions. Dozens of popular singers and dancers have grown up here. However, since China began opening up to the outside world in the late 1970s, more and more counterparts have challenged the art troupe. Originally, the troupe was the leading troupe specializing in the performance of Asian, African and Latin American folk songs and dances. As the time passes by, more and more overseas troupes come into China and Chinese theatergoers become much more informed, the troupe has to make all around improvements to win over audiences.
