Silk Road Music with Celso Machado & friends

Silk Road Music is the unique blend of music created by Qiu Xia He on pipa,

and Andre Thibault on guitar and flutes. I am pleased to be able to call
these wonderful people my friends. Andre and Qiu Xia have performed
at Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinners, and also were featured in the CBC tv
performance special that was broadcast in 2004 and 2005. We also
performed together for First Night 2005, at Library Square.

A CD release concert by Silk Road Music. Autumn Cloud is their 3rd
recording . The concert  reflects the musical experiences and speaks
the languages of the Journey of Qiu Xia He with her Pipa: from
traditional Chinese to a Celtic reel; from a folk song to a
contemporary classic; from a Spanish guitar piece to a flamenco
rumba; add a Brazilian baiao, and a modern blues. Some of the
compositions are by well know local composers: Jin Zhang, Mark
Armanini and Celso Machado, as well as many pieces written by Qiu
Xia He or with Andre Thibault, who is an important part of the new CD
and show.  

Silk Road Music is a professional Chinese ensemble that has been
touring and recording since 1991. It has a consistently successful
rapport with audiences and their last two CDs have won Best World
Music Album at the West Coast Music Awards. Their debut CD, Endless,
was also nominated for a JUNO.  

“The new CD release concert promises to be a wonderful musical event
blending the familiar with the exotic, all expertly played and absolutely
