Silk Road Music performing Aug 10 at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Classical Gardens
Silk Road Music is a very special musical ensemble featuring the duo of Qiu Xia He on pipa, and Andre Thibault on classical guitar. They are truly one of pioneers of world fusion music in Vancouver. I have gotten to know them over the past years, as Silk Road Music was featured in the CBC television performance special Gung Haggis Fat Choy, filmed in 2003. Andre and Qiu Xia also performed at the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner events for 2004, and also the First Night event with me on Dec 31, 2004.
Qui Xia and Andre have just returned from a tour in China and she sends this message:
We are just back from China and had a wonderful and very successful
time performing in Guangdong China. If you happen to have some time on
this Friday, please come down to Silk Road's concert at the Chinese
Garden, so we can share the stores with you and play some music.
