Tingting YAN


“Yangtze River chant” is one of the first group of national non-material cultural heritages. The author has conducted extensive field researches on the inheritance status of Yangtze River chant. Achievement has been made from the application for non-material cultural heritage to the post application era, but there is also a plight. Scientific and practical protection policy should be made to ensure Yangtze River chant can be effectively preserved and inherited. As for problems such as the inheritance mode tends to be single, the inheritance investment is not enough, the evaluation mechanisms is still absent, and the working mechanism needs to be specified, the author has advocated protection measures such as to establish diversified inheritance modes, to improve the evaluation mechanism and to develop a clear division system of right and responsibility, etc.. This article is based on systematic methods, interviews and field researches to explore the internal mechanism of effective inheritance and ecological protection.
