Recognized as the world’s premier pipa virtuoso, leading ambassador of Chinese music and Grammy Award-nominated musician, Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator, and composer who has given her lute-like instrument (which has a history of over 2,000 years in China) a new role in both traditional and contemporary music.

Wu Man will join the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band for performances of old tune traditional music with shadow puppetry. Amid vocal performances, the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band uses the yueqin, banhu, erhu, lute, fiddle and a variety of percussion instruments (including clappers, gongs, cymbals and a wood bench) to tell lively stories of rural life in remote China and draw the audience into places and sounds rarely heard in the West. Wu Man brings the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band to the U.S. for only the second time in an effort to not only preserve this traditional art form, but also show its relevance in our 21st century. The program features Wu Man performing both solo and with the Band.
