Silk Road Duo
Aug 2/19 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
For over twenty years, Silk Road Music has been smashing stereotypes about Chinese music and taking Chinese instruments in new artistic directions. Its pioneering musical fusions have merged Chinese folk and classical music with Brazilian, jazz, Celtic, Spanish, Arabic, Aboriginal and blues music. Founded by Qiu Xia He (pr. Chu-sha Her) along with her partner, Andre Thibault, the ensemble has earned a Juno nomination, two West Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations. Most recently, the group has begun exploring sinified flamenco music and performing on-stage with flamenco dancers.
For world music enthusiasts who delight in cross-cultural fertilization, Silkroad will excite your senses and gently challenge your musical sensibility.
