大澳位於香港的西端,面向伶仃洋,處於珠江出口。珠江口鹹淡水匯流,曾是一個漁產豐富的漁場,這讓大澳成為香港的一個主要漁港。在船隻以風帆推動的年代,大澳更是珠江口的船運樞紐。大澳曾經是一個集漁業、鹽業、商業及農業活動的海邊市鎮。現今仍保留了獨特的社區文化及歷史文物古蹟。

「大澳田野學園」計劃的目的,正是藉著大澳豐富的歷史文物,進行實地學習活動,鼓勵參加者接觸社會,親身瞭解地方歷史、社會與文化。

The associations’ dragon boats tow sacred sampans carrying deity statuettes in a parade through Tai O waters to invoke blessings for well-being and peace. This has been practiced for a century or more.

在香港及廣東地區,廣東敲擊音樂是地方音樂的基本元素。高頻的嗩吶聲音加上響亮的敲擊樂,形成充滿節奏感的音樂,一來可以調控儀式的進行,二來可以讓社區知悉儀式的進行。因此高頻及敲擊音樂在傳統鄉村儀式中,具有重要功用。以往,新界傳統鄉村都有自己的音樂隊伍,在婚禮、祭祖及節慶時擔任音樂伴奏。華南研究中心致力保育鄉村儀式傳統,與厦村友恭堂合辦「傳統鄉村音樂工作坊」,邀請正一科儀音樂專家,介紹弘揚鄉村傳統音樂。此活動獲非物質文化遺產辦事處資助。歡迎蒞臨參加。

The traditional Hakka Unicorn Dance has been practiced for more than 200 years. The Hakka people believe that the Chinese unicorn, qilin, is an auspicious animal that can ward off evil and bring them good luck. They perform unicorn dances during Lunar New Year, weddings, birthday parties, and communal festivals, as well as in enlightening rituals for new houses and renovated ancestral halls. After settling in Hong Kong’s New Territories, the Hakka people have developed their style of music and sequence of movements for the unicorn dance. In 2014, the Hang Hau Hakka unicorn dance was inscribed onto the fourth national list of ICH.
