Wu Fei blends her Western and Chinese traditional sensibilities with a contemporary, idiosyncratic, experimental dialect as she performs original compositions on the guzheng, an ancient 21-string Chinese zither. Presented by Sonosphere in collaboration with Crosstown Arts.
Jazz performance featuring Stephen Lee (piano), Johnny Yancy (Trumpet), Sylvester Sample (Acoustic Bass) and Nygel Yancey (Drums) celebrating the legacy of Thelonious Monk.
