The two sets of great classical musical composition named " Baishaxili " and " dongjing Yingyue " , which have been passed down as the " Musical Legacy of the Yuan Dynasty " and the Daoist music of Han people, are widely spread among Naxi people.
Some Western experts believe that they are " typical Chinese classical music " and " symphonies of Chinese style " . Lui Ju, the president of the Chinese Music Association, values them as the " living fossils of music ". They have been presently systematized and published. They are the cream of the research into the Naxi - Han cultural exchange and the histories of musical instrument and religion.
