Brief introduction of the speakers:

Ms Wu Man
World renowned pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, Wu Man has carved out a career as a soloist, educator and composer, giving her flute-like instrument―which has a history of over 2,000 years in China―a new role in both traditional and contemporary music. Through numerous concert tours, Wu Man has premiered hundreds of new works for the pipa, while spearheading multimedia projects to both preserve and create awareness of China’s ancient musical traditions. Her adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across artistic disciplines allowing Wu Man to reach wider audiences as she works to break through cultural and musical borders. Wu Man’s efforts were recognised when she was named Musical America’s musician to receive The United States Artist Fellowship in 2008 and was awarded the Bunting Fellowship at Harvard University in 1998. She is the first artist from China to perform at the White House. Her discography of more than 40 albums includes the Grammy award-winning Sing Me Home with the Silk Road Ensemble, which features Wu Man’s original composition Green (Vincent’s Tune); the Grammy-nominated recordings Our World in Song, Traditions and Transformations: Sounds of the Silk Road Chicago; her recording of Tan Dun’s Pipa Concerto with Yuri Bashmet and the Moscow Soloists; and You’ve Stolen My Heart featuring Wu Man and the Kronos Quartet. Wu Man frequently collaborates with the Kronos and Shanghai Quartets, the Knights, and the Silk Road Ensemble. She is a featured artist in the documentary The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, seen in theaters in 2016.
