U-M's Confucius Institute Presents: Asian Tradition Meets World Fusion with the Orchid Ensemble

Established in 1997, the JUNO nominated Orchid Ensemble is Lan Tung (Taiwan/Canada) on the erhu/Chinese violin, Ruisi Li (China/US) Yu-Chen Wang (Taiwan/US) on the zheng/Chinese zither, and Jonathan Bernard (Canada) on percussion. The ensemble blends ancient musical instruments and traditions from China and beyond and has embraced a variety of musical influences including traditional and contemporary Chinese music, World Music, New Music, Jazz, and Creative Improvisation. Acclaimed as "one of the brightest blossoms on the world music scene"(Georgia Straight), the Orchid Ensemble has been tirelessly developing an innovative musical genre based on the cultural exchange between Western and Asian musicians.
