With unrestrained sounds of the strings, differing emotions it brings. Starting to play erhu since the age of 5, Li Ting grows up with the two-stringed Chinese fiddle.

"I feel proud of being a traditional Chinese instrument player and also feel the responsibility on my shoulders (to pass it on)," said Li, a young musician with China National Opera & Dance Drama Theater. She also says music can bring people closer even if it's the first time they hear it.

In this interview, Li shares her experiences in overseas musical exchanges and some interesting stories of her teaching erhu to foreign students.
