Shen Yun is a Chinese performing arts group. The program they produce features dances and musicians highlighting Chinese culture. They will be performing in San Antonio shortly. I was studying the brochure and came across a description of the erhu.
Color me dense, but I’ve never heard of an erhu before. It’s an instrument that is said to most closely resemble the human voice. However, it only has two strings.
So, I had to go to YouTube to see if I could find an example.
Fascinating, isn’t it? Plus, isn’t she gorgeous?
Here’s their website if you’d like to check their performance schedule.
