Challenging Chinese musical traditions
- What:Evening events
LIVE MUSIC: Join us for a concert by Xu Fengxia and Lucas Niggli (aka Black Lotos) and hear a powerful combination of traditional Chinese instruments, percussion and borderless vocals.
Specialised in traditional Chinese stringed instruments, Xu Fengxia has studied music since the age of 5, initially focussing on the ‘Pipa’, then mastering four instruments: guzheng, guqin, sanxian and a small lute called liuqin.
An international artist whose traditional Chinese style has developed through intensive collaborations worldwide, here Xu plays with formidable percussionist Lucas Niggli.
A unique duo, Black Lotos engage tradition as well as innovation in what promises to be an intense and highly –energetic performance.
