Five young artists from pastoral areas in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region performed folk music works Wednesday after finishing four-year overseas study.
The young artists, funded by the China Literature and Art Foundation (CLAF), graduated from the University of Kentucky in the United States and they can perform traditional and modern Mongolian chorus as well as Chinese and western instruments.
This was the first time that the CLAF sent young people from poor areas to study abroad and it was a successful attempt, said Xiang Yunju, deputy president and secretary general of the CLAF.
The CLAF launched a project in 2014 to subsidize visiting scholars, young art teachers and music talent for overseas study.
