Virtuoso Wu Man & Huayin Shadow Puppet Band
There's only one person who can make a 2,000-year-old Chinese instrument relevant again, and that's Wu Man, the world's premier pipa (Chinese lute) virtuoso. Man -- a two-time Grammy-nominated artist -- is a member of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and was named Instrumentalist of the Year in 2013 by Musical America. Hailed by Gramophone as "a one-woman force of nature," Man uses her musical artistry and technical skill to preserve traditional Chinese music for contemporary audiences. Now this renowned performer joins forces with the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band for an evening of stirring music at The New York Society for Ethical Culture. Blending Eastern music with visually-striking shadow puppetry, the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band brings the stories of rural China to stunning life, drawing audiences into places and sounds rarely experienced in the West.
