Dr Cheng Yu

Back in April I featured May Fong Robinson's beautiful digital artwork of Crystal Liu playing the Chinese pipa (CLICK). Here's another pipa, Dr Cheng Yu's recreation of the 5-stringed pipa (lost since the 8th century, Tang Dynasty). She will be playing the pipa (lute) and guqin (zither) at the Horniman Museum on Wednesday 5 September from 7pm to 9pm in the Gardens Pavilion (CLICK). Tickets cost £12 in advance or £14 on the door, including a glass of wine in the interval. Not sure whether to lash out? CLICK to watch a YouTube video of Cheng Yu playing Dance of the Yao People. Breathtaking!

Hi Dr Cheng Yu, it was great to see you perform liver and here my post for the event.

Chinese New Year celebrations were held at Rich Mix Theatre with a sale of craft, clothes and food and a variety of traditional Chinese music and a Lion dance performance.

A traditional Chinese music ensemble played by the UK Chinese Ensemble was led by world-famous pipa (4-stringed Chinese lute) performer Dr Cheng Yu
