On October 29, the Sounds Global Ensemble will perform at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden as part of the 14th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival. The group’s diverse repertoire is drawn from Jewish, Persian, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, Indian, and Chinese music.
Comprised of some of Vancouver's most active musicians from the world music scene with a variety of instrumentation, the ensemble will perform as a quartet at this year’s Festival: Lan Tung on erhu (Chinese violin), Bic Hoang on danbau (Vietnamese zither), Moshe Denburg on guitar, and Jonathan Bernard on percussion.
