Tangram is part of a double-bill at LSO St. Luke’s on 25th January, also featuring Global Soundscapes by Belle Chen.
Tangram is an artist collective that creates and curates new Chinese music. As accomplished musicians from various backgrounds, Reylon Yount (yangqin), Beibei Wang (percussion), Daniel Shao (flute), and Alex Ho (composition) share a common desire to explore conceptions of the Chinese diaspora in nuanced ways. Their work begins with reflections on personal experiences and extends to broader considerations of the complexities of cross-cultural life. In this concert, they will perform a range of contemporary pieces for yangqin, percussion, and flute, including the world premiere of a new work by Alex Ho.
CAN Festival’s 2019 music programme is generously supported by The Fenton Arts Trust.
