A 16-member delegation headed by Derek Corrigan, mayor of the Canadian city of Burnaby, paid a visit to Yunnan provincial capital of Kunming City in on March 12.

At downtown Kunming, the delegation was entertained by a Yunnan ethnic show performed by Modern Sky, a well-known music company in China. 

The visit aims to increase people-to-people exchange between Kunming and Burnaby. And the Modern Sky company is expected to do more to make Yunnan ethnic music and handicrafts better known to the Canadian audience, while introducing into Kunming more artistic forms from the Canadian city. 

In Yunnan, the Modern Sky won its fame via hosting the annual Strawberry Music Festival and the 500KM City Music Festival.

Burnaby is a city in British Columbia, Canada, located immediately to the east of Vancouver.
