Saturday, May 28: Earth Walking…Earth Singing: North/South Meridians. Tradition


On May 28th, Beijing’s Nine Theater will host to a unique blend of multi-cultural musical talents. In collaboration with the Asian Cultural Council, musicians have been brought in from across the world to perform in this series of concerts. This unique collection of musicians will take you on an auditory journey that reaches all the way from the exotic stylings of Burma’s “Golden Land” to the heart of Chinese culture and music. The line-up includes Myanmar Pyi U Kyauk Sein, Thiyi Maung Maung and the Gitameit Hsaing Waing Percussion Ensemble; Chinese guqin virtuoso Wu Na; American baritone Thomas Buckner; pianist Kit Young; and members of the Beijing New Music Ensemble. They will be playing traditional songs as well as the compositions of Thai composer Narong Prangcharoen and American composer Eli Marshall.
