Wu Man and the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band
THU, MAR 8
“Watching the musicians let fly on lutes, fiddles and gongs, as the singers roared through lively ballads recounting folk tales and myths, you were swept up by their energy and charisma.” The New York Times
Wu Man is the world’s premier master of the pipa, a “one-woman force of nature” (Gramophone). A principal member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, her adventurous spirit and virtuosity leads to collaborations across artistic disciplines. In an evening of traditional Chinese music and other selections with shadow puppetry, the brilliant Huayin Shadow Puppet Band joins Wu Man to perform lively stories of life in rural China, with shadow puppets, lutes, fiddles, wooden clappers and gongs.
