PHNOM PENH， Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Artists from the Huaxia Ancient Music Orchestra of China's Henan Museum performed traditional dances and music here Tuesday night to celebrate upcoming Chinese New Year， or Spring Festival.
Held at the Chenla Theater， the two-and-a-half-hour show， presided over by Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Hor Namhong and Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Xiong Bo， attracted about 600 spectators.

"In Cambodia， most Cambodian people as well as overseas Chinese celebrate the Spring Festival，" he said， adding that the Cambodian people usually observed New Year three times a year， namely Universal New Year， Chinese New Year， and Cambodian New Year in April.
The deputy prime minister said he had noted that the Chinese Spring Festival had been celebrated broadly around the world， including in France and the United States.

Tep Savry， the senior student at the Royal University of Fine Arts， said it was the first time that she had watched Chinese arts performance and praised China for having preserved its ancient culture well.
"It was an amazing performance that featured Chinese culture in old times，" she told Xinhua after the show. "Previously， I used to see Chinese ancient dances and music through movies only， but now， I see them with my own eyes."
"All artists are very talented and they have performed well，" she said.
Another spectator said he had never seen such a wonderful performance before.
"The concert brings closer cultural relations between the two countries and encourages Cambodian people to study Chinese language so that they can learn more about Chinese culture，" said high-school student Lim Hong Sreng.

NAIROBI Black Tedric Thompson Jersey , May 10 (Xinhua) -- Double Olympic champion David Rudisha is one of four Kenyan track elites eyeing to dominate at the Shanghai meeting on Saturday as global stars line up in the Chinese city in pursuit of early points in the 14-tier IAAF Diamond League.
The Kenyans, who jetted out Wednesday for Shanghai Black Amara Darboh Jersey , will be putting their reputation on the line against a spirited challenge from their rivals as the premier track and field competition gets underway on its second stop after the inaugural round in Doha last Friday.
"It's time again. It is the season opener for me in Shanghai and I love the stadium, the crowd and the challenge Black Nazair Jones Jersey ," said Rudisha.
Rudisha was fifth on his Shanghai debut 12 months ago, at a time he was struggling to reclaim his form after a knee surgery and the 800m world record-holder is relishing the chance to make amends as he takes on fellow Kenyan Olympic finalists Ferguson Rotich and Alfred Kipketer Black Delano Hill Jersey , plus Polish pair Adam Kszczot and Marcin Lewandowski.
While Rudisha finished out of the points 12 months ago, compatriot Faith Kipyegon broke the Kenyan record to win the women's 1500m and went on to win Olympic gold in Rio.
