I'm closer, a zither musician graduated from central conservatory of music. I grew up and lived in Beijing. I tried a lot of cultural travel with music. I'm a contract writer for the airbnb "story" community.

My friend krystal, a flute musician with high professional accomplishments, is also a good acapella singer. She has a fun soul and beautiful face.

My friend bb, an improvisational jazz composer who knows the history of Chinese and western music, writes in a variety of music styles, and was a guitarist and lead singer for the "dirty grid" band.

We are all graduates from the central academy of music who love music and eager to share its beauty with you. If you like music, especially Chinese traditional music, but didn't have a chance to get close enough or spend time to know it, this is the right choice.

Music is neither shallow nor as deep as the diehard think. Music is clever and interesting. Behind music, there are counthless wonderful stories

Where you'll be

In the most distinctive hutong of the old Beijing city, there is a quadrangle courtyard with a combination of primitive simplicity and modern style, where our activities will be held. In this Indoor creative space, the wind blows through the branches, the clouds reflected by the Windows, the figures reflected in the pond and the birds flock through the alley. On the terrace, you can see the glass and dougong of the traditional Chinese architecture - the temple of Confucius. In the middle of the 500-year history of ancient capital, we enjoy the collision between Chinese and western music.

這次的音樂會非常的棒 用中國傳統樂器去跨界詮釋了從東方到西洋 從古典到現代流行 無論是全新的編曲或是對傳統的演繹 都是令人驚艷。兩位演奏家們在互動環節的表現也相當好 很有耐心且專業的與聽眾互相分享音樂以及生活 讓參與者不只是聽 而是真正有些精神上的或是知識上的收穫。
