Wu Man and the Huayin Shadow Puppet Band
Friday, March 2 | 7:30 p.m., Kirkham Auditorium | Rexburg
Chinese pipa virtuoso Wu Man joins with the brilliant Huayin Shadow Puppet Band for an evening of old-time traditional music and shadow puppetry. Amid shouts and the strumming of lutes and fiddles, the percussion of clappers and the ringing of gongs, the band sings and plays about rural life in remote China. Wu Man is a principal musician with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble and has also recorded music for the soundtrack of the DreamWorks Animation film, Kung Fu Panda 3.
