Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
At one time, the erhu was the muse of Central Asian nomads; this small, two-stringed fiddle could be played on horseback (imagine folk modifying an archer's bow with hair from the horse's tail to rub against silk strings). Over hundreds of years, this soulful little instrument made its way into the heart of China-enchanting the people of the Imperial court, the villagers and the poets, alike. It wasn't until the late 20th century that one of China's most beloved instruments made its way into the conservatories to continue its thousand-year evolution.   
Notes: Credits:
Ancient. Mysterious. Cultivated.
For hundreds of years, China has held sway over the western imagination. With exquisite silks, architecture, poetry, calligraphy, paintings, and more, the bounty of this great civilization pays witness to the enormous creativity and heart of its people. Passage to the Middle Kingdom focuses on one of China's most affecting exports: her music.

From America's suburbs to the subways, from community centers to world-renowned stages, Chinese musicians are bringing the sounds of an ancient art form to our western tapestry. Passage to the Middle Kingdom tells the stories of the instruments, the music, and the keepers of this oral tradition.
