As one of the representative art of Chinese traditional culture, folk songs are expressed as landscape culture in a specific geographical space. According to the concept of landscape-gene, we can identify the genetic structure of folk song cultural landscape from two dimensions such as ontology morphology and cultural environment. In the perspective of gene, combined with descriptive statistical analysis from Chinese folk songs Anthology, this paper derives spatial distribution characteristics of folk song cultural landscape. In addition, the paper proposes a new viewing angle to interpret the internal mechanism of the folk song landscape. In perspective of cultural geography, human, space, symbolic representation and the landscape image construct an intact system, in which any elements are connected to each other. Advocating the research and protecting the folk song cultural landscape have a very important role in cultural continuation and tourism development in China.

Key words: folk song culture, landscape-gene, spatial distribution, mechanism, China
