Have musical exchange with our special guests Yaping Wang (yangqin) from Taiwan/Paris and Anand Avirmed (Khoomei & horsehead fiddle) from Mongolia/the US.
We will select popular Chinese folk tunes and some Celtic jigs and reels to begin with, but all genres are welcome. Some sheet music will be provided on site for those interested in reading. If you’d to receive the lead sheets ahead of time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also just show up and play it by ear. Professional, amateur, or students are all welcome.
