Arts Midwest World Fest ensemble Manhu in Red Wing
October 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Arts Midwest World Fest ensemble Manhu will be participating in their weeklong residency in Red Wing beginning October 22nd. The public concert will be October 28th at 7pm.
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. 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 tour to the United States. Experience this exciting performance and connect to an age-old culture made modern. Manhu, a musical ensemble from China, will visit Red Wing as part of Arts Midwest World Fest.
