I am a closer, I studied music (Guzheng) since I was a child, graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music, and continued to hold private concerts at the airbnb experience in 2018. At the same time, I initiated the art tour of "seeing the world with music" and tried many humanistic trips. Use music as a medium to explore the roots and changes of culture and art around the world.

I am a professional musician and an advocate of an innovative lifestyle: I am a music traveler and author of travel contracts, a special guest on the CCTV "Fenghua National Music" column, a professional teacher of Guzheng...

The music is neither shallow nor so stubborn as people think. Music is ingenious and interesting. Behind the music are countless wonderful stories.

I hope that through my music, I can show you cultural stories with different perspectives. I hope to use music to open a new and interesting lifestyle.

Closer has such a deep and personal knowledge of her subject matter and her translator is very quick and efficient. Our group really enjoyed this experience and practicing their Chinese language skills with Closer.
