Unite the Eastern Pipa to the Western guitar!
Silk Road Music with Celso Machado | July 20
Show starts: 7:30 pm | Doors open : 7 pm
Founded by Ms. Qiu Xia He, a one-time music teacher and touring musician in her native Shaanxi of China, the Silk Road Music ensemble has been smashing stereotypes about Chinese music and taking Chinese instruments in new artistic directions for over twenty years. Its pioneering musical fusions have merged Chinese folk and classical music with Brazilian, jazz, Celtic, Spanish, Arabic, Aboriginal and blues music.
Striking out with inspiration, freshness and passion, Silk Road Music unites the Eastern Pipa to the Western guitar. After years of perfecting their sound in live performances and breaking boundaries, their new CD Standing Out 立气 called for pure artistic choice and maturity. Expressing authentic views on traditional music forms. Whether you can name the music category or not, Silk Road Music delivers virtuosity and imagination. A harmonious musical tapestry, unconstrained, waiting to be enjoyed!
For their work, the ensemble has earned a Juno nomination, two West Coast Music Awards and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.
