Ku­lang­su, Now And Then: A Short Film


What makes Ku­lang­su great is its di­ver­si­ty, open­heart­ed­ness, and ea­ger­ness to em­brace the dif­fer­ent, while al­so nur­tur­ing and pro­mot­ing its roots. Wel­com­ing new, mod­ern in­flu­ences may not al­ways be an easy task, as peo­ple may fear that the process of grow­ing and ex­pand­ing their hori­zons might in­ter­fere with their his­to­ry. Over the years, the peo­ple of Ku­lang­su have cre­at­ed a per­fect bal­ance be­tween nur­tur­ing their tra­di­tion and in­cor­po­rat­ing new waves in­to their iden­ti­ty, and it is safe to say that their ef­fort has paid off. Ku­lang­su has al­ways been known for wel­com­ing every­one with open hands, and they in­tend on con­tin­u­ing that rep­u­ta­tion — which is ex­act­ly why its touris­tic po­ten­tial has proliferated.

Through­out his­to­ry, Ku­lang­su has faced many ups and downs, and the im­pacts of glob­al­iza­tion haven’t al­ways been pos­i­tive. How­ev­er, in­stead of fight­ing the for­eign in­flu­ence and clos­ing their minds and hearts, Ku­lang­su be­came a mul­ti­cul­tur­al is­land, em­brac­ing the di­ver­si­ty — which is now one of its sta­ples. Im­ple­ment­ing for­eign styles and move­ments in­to their own art, the peo­ple of Ku­lang­su man­aged to cre­ate an un­replic­a­ble fu­sion of cul­tures unique to Ku­lang­su, which can be felt in many as­pects — es­pe­cial­ly mu­sic. Ku­lang­su is al­so known as the is­land of mu­sic, due to its rich his­to­ry of clas­si­cal mu­sic and many tal­ent­ed mu­si­cians, which is a tra­di­tion that lives on.
