Description

Imagine pipa virtuoso Wu Man, "a one-woman force of nature" (Gramophone) and a favorite of Berkeley audiences after her acclaimed collaborations with Kronos Quartet and the Silk Road Ensemble, immersed in the gloriously raucous folk music of a small village in China's Shaanxi Province. The Huayin Shadow Puppet Band, which Wu Man discovered and brought to New York for Carnegie Hall's China Festival in 2009, performs lively stories of life in rural China, with shadow puppets, lutes, fiddles, wooden clappers, and gongs.
