明慧網二零零八年一月四日】二零零八年新年伊始,由法輪功學員組成的天國樂團分別出現在歐洲的倫敦和巴黎、香港、臺灣等地的新年慶典和集會遊行中。他們用音樂和表演把法輪大法的美好和新年祝福帶給了成千上萬世界各地的人們,天國樂團氣勢磅礴的演奏令人感到振奮和鼓舞。其中出現在倫敦新年大遊行中的天國樂團,其精彩亮相帶給了人們強烈的震撼。
At the beginning of the New Year 2008, the Divine Land Marching Band, which is composed of Falun Gong practitioners, were invited to participate in various parades and other activities celebrating the New Year in London, Paris, Hong Kong and Taiwan respectively. Through performing music, it brought Falun Dafa’s magnificence and New Year blessing to tens of millions of people across the globe. The Marching Band’s breathtaking performance inspired many people and deeply touched their hearts. Among others, the wonderful performance of the Marching Band in the grand parade celebrating the New Year in London was highly acclaimed by people there.

今年英國法輪功團體再一次參加了倫敦新年大遊行,遊行現場的五十余萬觀眾親眼目睹了法輪功學員在花車上盛開的蓮花裏平靜祥和的功法表演男學員雄渾有力的旗舞與女學員優美典雅的中國傳統扇子舞以及以“再現神韻”為主題的造型精美、內涵深遠的花車。而令倫敦觀眾分外驚喜的是他們已經十分熟悉的法輪功隊伍中增加了打頭陣的軍樂團——首次出現在倫敦新年大遊行中的天國樂團。
The U.K. Falun Gong group was once again invited to participate in the New Year grand parade in London this year. There were about 500,000 people saw the group’s magnificent performances, including the demonstration of the peaceful Falun Gong exercises in a blossoming lotus flower on a float, the vigorous flag dance performed by male practitioners, the traditional Chinese fan dance performed by female practitioners, and the beautiful float delicately designed to feature the splendor of the “Divine Performing Arts’ Chinese Spectacular.” What really surprised people in London was the breathtaking performance by the Divine Land Marching Band, which led the Falun Gong procession in the New Year grand parade.
樂隊成員演奏了 “法輪大法好”、“法鼓法號震十方”和“歡樂頌”等樂曲,鏗鏘有力的鼓聲驚天動地,被活動現場主持人譽為“最大嗓門的參與隊伍”,法輪功學員整體隊伍經過時,現場主持人通過擴音器向無數觀眾介紹法輪大法的美好。樂聲過處,現場觀眾紛紛鼓掌、不斷喝彩,臉上露出燦爛的笑容,接著高興的向排列在天國樂團後面的其他法輪功學員招手示意,很多人主動的向法輪功學員喊 “Happy New Year!”,並對法輪功學員發放的手工蓮花爭相索要、愛不釋手。
The Band played "Falun Dafa is Good", "Drums and Trumpets Shake the World in Ten Directions" and "Song of Joy" along the parade route. The drums’ sonorous sound was so marvelous and breathtaking that the Band was praised as the “group with most outstanding sound” by the host of the activity. When Falun Gong procession passed the platform, the host especially introduced the goodness of Falun Data to the spectators through the loudspeaker. When the Band passed by, the spectators clapped tumultuously one after another, and their faces were wearing beaming smiles. Some waved their hands to other Falun Gong practitioners behind the Band; others took initiative to exclaim “Happy New Year!” to Falun Gong practitioners, and still others asked for paper-folded lotus flowers distributed by practitioners.
在約一個半小時的遊行過程中,天國樂團成員一直保持著整齊有力的步伐,並不斷的對觀眾的熱情鼓勵和喝彩報以微笑。在遊行快要結束的時候,倫敦的天空下起了細雨,而天國樂團仍然保持隊伍整齊、精神抖擻的面貌直至遊行結束。遊行活動組織者在遊行結束後對法輪功學員表示:他對天國樂團在法輪功隊伍中的出現感到很吃驚,樂隊的表演非常好,很高興他們能來來參加遊行。他還評價說近幾年來法輪功遊行隊伍一年比一年好,今年的表演是最棒的!

Throughout the course of the parade, which lasted about one and a half hours, members of the Band marched in unison and kept smiling all the time in response to the spectators’ warm applause. When the parade was about to end, it started drizzling in London area; however, the practitioners were still in high spirits and marched in orderly lines to the end of the parade. After the parade came to a close, the organizer of the event told some practitioners that he was surprised to see the Divine Land Marching Band in the procession of Falun Gong, and that he was amazed by the its wonderful performance. He added that he was pleased to see Falun Gong practitioners participating in the parade, and that Falun Gong group’s performance has been better and better in recent years, especially this year.
參加遊行的天國樂團成員們都為自己能夠為這麼多觀眾展示法輪大法的美好感到很高興。第一次參加天國樂團表演的英國小姑娘克利斯蒂在遊行結束後高興的說遊行太棒了,她看到觀眾對天國樂團不斷歡呼。當被問到現場感受時,來自臺灣、頭一次在國外表演的一位年輕女學員回答說:看到觀眾們聽到天國樂團演奏時的高興勁兒自己很感動,而在演出行進過程中只能以微笑來與觀眾交流互動。她為自己能夠克服困難來到倫敦參加這次活動感到很自豪。住在倫敦、曾經參加過天國樂團在歐洲其他城市表演的汪先生說他感到很多觀眾真的喜歡天國樂團的表演,他看到有很多人在跟著樂曲興奮的拍手、甚至跳躍。
The members of the Band who joined the parade were glad that they were able to display the magnificence of Falun Dafa to so many spectators. After the parade, a British girl by the name of Christine, who joined the Band and participated in the parade for the first time, said that it was great to participate in the parade, and that she saw the spectators hailed the Band from time to time. When asked about her feelings, a young female practitioner from Taiwan who performed overseas for the first time said that she was moved by the spectators’ exciting response to the Band’s performance. As a result, she kept smiling to interact with the spectators throughout the parade. She was proud of being able to make it through some difficulties to participate in the activity in London this time. Mr. Wang, a member of the Band who has participated in the Band’s performance in various cities in Europe, said that he felt that many people really like the Band’s performance, and that he witnessed many people clap and even dance along the music played by the Band.
觀看二零零八年倫敦新年大遊行的觀眾再次感受了法輪大法的祥和美好,以及法輪功學員展示的中華神傳文化的資訊,他們更為天國樂團集體展現的力量所深深的震撼。
The spectators seeing the 2008 New Year grand parade in London once again witnessed the peacefulness and wonderfulness of Falun Dafa as well as the magnificence of traditional Chinese divine culture. Among others, they were deeply amazed by overwhelming vigor presented by the Divine Land Marching Band.

遊行結束後,參加遊行的所有法輪功學員來到一街頭公園集體照相,恭祝師尊新年好。在這一過程中有一對英國老夫婦一直在一旁靜靜的看著。隨後告訴上前問候法輪功學員,他們叫鮑勃和珍妮,是倫敦當地的居民,年年觀看新年遊行,很喜歡法輪功團隊的表演,發現法輪功的展示表演每年都有更新,今年增加的軍樂隊表演讓他們感到很振奮。
After the parade, all practitioners participating in the event moved to a nearby park to poise for group photos, which would be sent to Master Li as New Year greetings. During the process, an elderly British couple saw the practitioners quietly. They told a practitioner who talked to them afterward that they were London residents by the names of Bob and Jenny, and they have watched the New Year Parade every year. They really liked Falun Gong group’s performance very much, and found that the group’s performances were added some variety every year. They were especially inspired by the Marching Band’s performance this year.
其中珍妮還說她覺的法輪功隊伍中花車上的跳舞女孩兒的大照片太漂亮了。當法輪功學員告訴她那是神韻藝術團舞蹈演員的照片,而神韻藝術團將要在今年二月來倫敦表演時,珍妮和鮑勃高興的說他們一定要買票去看。
Jenny added that the young female dancer’s huge photo on the float in the Falun Gong procession was very beautiful. When Falun Gong practitioners told her that it was the photo of a dancer of the Divine Performing Arts, which would perform in London in February, both Jenny and Bob were very delighted to hear that and said that they would definitely go see the show.
遊行的第二天晚上,在倫敦中使館前二十四小時和平抗議的法輪功學員托尼遇到了每週三晚上來中使館前抗議的“自由西藏”成員——一對來自德國的老夫婦,他們平時已經瞭解了中共邪黨對法輪功的迫害。這一天他們一見到托尼,就興奮的說:昨天在遊行隊伍中見到你們法輪功了,沒有想到你們法輪功這麼厲害,隊伍這麼大,特別是那個樂隊,鼓聲太震撼人心了,相信在六英里之內的人都可能聽到,你們幹的真好。
In the following evening, Tony, a practitioner who participated in an around-the-clock peaceful protest in front of the Chinese Embassy in London, met an elderly German couple who were members of the Free Tibet Campaign and have staged a protest at the Embassy every Wednesday evening regularly. The couple had already known the Chinese Communist regime’s evil persecution against Falun Gong. Upon seeing Tony, they excitedly said, “I saw the Falun Gong procession in the parade yesterday. It was amazing that Falun Gong group was so wonderful and the procession was so long. Especially the sonorous sound of the drums in the Marching Band was indeed extremely breathtaking. I think all of the people within six miles might have heard of it. Good for you!”
