Wang Li and Wu Wei play the kouxian (Jew’s harp) and the sheng respectively. Their’s is an astonishing musical encounter between two immense artists of the oriental tradition, one living in Paris, the other in Berlin, who focus their skills on a different breath and time, on harmonics that grip the listener with telluric force. With its inspired use of the Chinese mouth organ and a multitude of instruments including the musicians’ own bodies, this is music that deserves to be experienced – the experience of a sound that is quite simply indescribable!


July 23 @ Stanley Kaplan House (Lincoln Center Festival) (8PM)
