Introduction

Midu County (弥渡县) is a county in the Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture located in western Yunnan Province, China. When travelling in Yunnan province, many people are impressed by the melody of the Bai ethnic love song: The Rippling Brook or "xiao he tang shui" in Chinese.

Many places of Yunnan have kept the tradition to perform Huadeng opera, such as Kunming, Yuxi and Yao'an.
