Hip Hapa and Happening: Intercultural activities for Aug 31 to Sept
If my back wasn't bothering me today, I would be at the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens on Friday night, as my friends Qiu Xia and Andre Thibault put on a very special music concert with their erhu playing friend Ji-Rong Huang.
Andre and Qiu Xia have a very special place in the world of Gung Haggis Fat Choy. Silk Road Music Ensemble performed in the CBC Vancouver television performance special, and Silk Road Music Duo have performed at Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese New Year dinners over the years.
featuring Silk Road Music Duo
Road Duo is a new music performance that introduces audiences to
different cultures through the experience, discoveries, and travels of
Qiu Xia He with her Pipa, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Andre
Thibault. The pipa, a Chinese lute with a wide range of expression,
will be the focal point. This husband and wife team is well equipped
for this cultural mission. Both have lived passionately as professional
musicians. Their common bond and love of music have taken them on tours
all over the world.
