Discover the folk sounds of rural China right in your own backyard. Share the ancient melodies and captivating instruments of Manhu, lively musicians from a remote landscape of small towns, quiet lakes, and forests made of stone. Experience this exciting American debut and connect to an age-old culture made modern.
Hailing from the Stone Forest of Yunnan Province in southwestern China, Manhu brings to life the traditions of the Yi people, an ethnic minority group with a rich musical history. Playing the hulusheng, a mouth organ made from dried gourds, and even an ordinary leaf used as a reed, Manhu shares instruments and songs that are well-known in their homeland but rarely seen on an international stage. The ensemble has performed throughout China, but this is their first international tour.
