 Japanese people - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The most accepted theory is that present-day Japanese are descended principally from both the Jomon, a paleo-Asiatic people, and the Yayoi, a neo-Asiatic people, with cultural influences from the Korean kingdoms of Gaya and Baekje, and also from the Sui, and Tang Dynasty of China.
The Japanese trace their ancestry to the Jomon people and the Yayoi people, and then perhaps the Koreans, Mongolians, Malays, Indonesians, and Polynesians, thus making their Mongoloid traits unique.
Most scholars believe Yayoi culture was brought to the Japanese islands by immigrants from the Korean peninsula and China.

We are writing to you on behalf of the Inner Mongolian Peoples Party, the only existing political organization of the Inner Mongolians --- the 3.7 million Mongols living under the colonial rule of Peoples Republic of China.

 How I Came to be a Composer
Qinghai province, which is in a very remote area and used to be part of Tibet, is the home of many different ethnic groups — such as Tibetans, Mongolians, and Chinese Muslims.
My opera Song of Majnun, for instance, is based on the Tibetan folk music in Qinghai; my Seven Tunes in China uses folk tunes from both Qinghai and Tibet; and the first movement from my China Dreams is based on a folk melody I heard in Qinghai.
Folk songs from Qinghai are a special and beautiful type of music ­ simultaneously savage and sensual — so I started collecting and studying them on the side, including the hua'er or flower songs, which are sung in one of Qinghai's provincial dialects.
