Most of Qinghai's Tibetan residential areas are referred to as "Amdo", but Yushu Prefecture are known as "Kham", such as Chamdo (Changdu) Prefecture of Tibet, Garze (Ganzi) Prefecture of Sichuan, and Diqing Prefecture in Yunnan. Khampa Tibetans have colorful costumes. The Khampa Tibetans are good at sing and dance, besides, their music is expressive, which show their art talent.

Ling on a natural and beautiful meadow, Yushu is considered as a "paradise for singing and dancing".
