“the sun broke through the clouds and jumped out of the ground. Seeing the fine weather, the farmers slowly climbed up the mountain with their burdens on their backs. After climbing on the top of the slope and having a rest, people are calling out to hoe and cultivate the land… ” The vivid scene in the familiar Sichuan Chongqing folk song “the sun comes out joyfully” is being played by five Chengdu people, with an average age of 65, using tuba, trombone, horn and trumpet under Shawan overpass on the first ring road.

this year, because of the epidemic, the venues used for the ensemble have not been opened to the public, so they have to play music at home. Playing by oneself is different from that of ensemble. There is no sense of hierarchy and accomplishment of ensemble sound. Chen Haibin is very itchy. In February this year, five of them thought about playing together with wechat video. However, due to the network delay, they could not play together, so they had to give up.

in May, after the epidemic situation eased slightly, several people began to play together on the side of the road. But the roadside wind and sun, a few old people can not bear this kind of toss, the experience is very poor. When Chen Haibin went out to walk his dog, he happened to find the “Fengshui treasure land” – the bridge hole of the first ring road Shawan road crossing bridge, which was like a huge natural high-quality sound. He gathered the harmony together, just like a small stage, which would not affect others, but also prevent the sun and rain. The

bands are very “holding hands”,

of Chengdu people are recorded by Ji Gang and Chen Haibin. In the 1980s, both Ji Gang and Chen Haibin were members of the literary and engineering troupe of the Second Railway Bureau. Later, the literary troupe was dissolved, Ji Gang went to work as a tour guide, and Chen Haibin joined the government. However, Ji Gang still did not give up his music hobby. He began to resume horn practice in 2008. He had 20 years of playing experience in total. Before the establishment of

Five people cooperate very well, which is called “clasping hands” in Sichuan dialect. “We don’t think that we are professional or amateur. It’s important to have a good harmony.” Ji Gang said.

and

now have more than 20 pieces of music rehearsed and performed, including eight pieces adapted and arranged by Chen Haibin and Wu Yibing.

. They wanted to adapt some songs with Sichuan local characteristics. The same as the article, the song has a theme. The original song of “the sun comes out and is joyful” is composed by Jin Gu. Cai Shao Xu sings a folk song of Yudong. The whole song has only one main melody, which wants to express the feelings of Sichuan people’s love for their hometown and fighting against heaven and earth. Chen Haibin told the Red Star News reporter that the folk song is very popular in Sichuan and Chongqing area, and almost everyone will hum a sentence or two, so he chose this song for adaptation.

Several members of

have been exposed to wind music since childhood. Wu Yibing began to learn wind music at the age of 16, playing the trumpet at that time and changed to playing the tuba in 2011. In order to play the tuba, when he was decorating his house, he specially instructed his master to change the walls, glass and floor of his piano room into double-layer sound insulation, for fear of disturbing the people, so that he could not continue to practice. After the decoration, he locked himself in the room and practiced for four or five hours with the tuba.

Mr. Zhang followed the ensemble of “I and my motherland”. He couldn’t help but sing the whole piece along with the performance. “My home is next to the overpass. I can often see them rehearse. Sometimes they come early, only two or three people can hear a piece of music.”

Ji Gang said that although there was no way to rehearse indoors, they had the opportunity to show it to more people and let them know about the brass quintet. Also because here, they also made a lot of friends from other places. Some nearby residents and he added wechat, and they would come to listen for a while as soon as there was a rehearsal.
