World of Chinese Guqin  

A traditional musical instrument from the sitar family, with seven plucked strings, the “guqin” (or qin) is one of the most ancient Chinese musical instruments. Its expressive qualities and the different ways it can be played are illustrated in this concert, which brings together both young talents and experienced players.

Originally from Shanghai, she will accompany singer GONG Linna, backed by WANG Hua on dizi flute.
