Melody of China: Songs of the Dragon (龍之音)
January 8 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Travel across the Pacific Ocean in this intriguing survey of Chinese traditional music with Melody of China (漢聲樂團), described in the The San Francisco Chronicle as “innovative and dazzling.” Founded in 1993 and dedicated to promoting Chinese music in the Bay Area and beyond through scintillating concerts and educational outreach, Melody of China will delight SFEMS audiences using traditional Chinese instruments—hammered dulcimers, zithers, fiddles, lutes, mouth organs, and bamboo flutes—and historically informed techniques to showcase the remarkable diversity of Chinese musical traditions. Celebrate the new year again, but this time in lunar fashion!
