The Ulan Muqir Art Troupe (UMAT) from north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region will continue to provide grassroots audiences with high-quality performances long into the future, said a local lawmaker and former musician.

The pledge was made on March 20 by Wang Xiaohong, deputy director-general of the Tongliao branch committee of the China Association for Promoting Democracy (CAPD), who is also a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress (NPC).

Wang, 49, is a member of the Mongolian ethnic group. As a National First-class Performer and director of the media department at Khorchin Vocational College of Art, she said she felt excited and inspired when President Xi Jinping joined a panel discussion of the Inner Mongolia delegation and shook hands with her at the "Two Sessions" meetings in Beijing on March 5.

Performers from the troupe have often traveled across Inner Mongolia to present their music to local people, who are sparsely distributed on the grasslands, ever since it was established by the government in 1957.

The number of team members at UMAT has risen from only one at the beginning to 75 now. On average, their artists have spent over 200 days per year giving artistic performances.

Wang noted that the UMAT would further strengthen its ties with local people and produce more high-quality works in the future.

She suggested that the nation step up its support for the further development of UMAT in terms of favorable policies and the cultivation of more skilled performers.

Moreover, she called for closer cooperation between archive departments and performing arts organizations in making a full exploration of historical resources.
