Wu Man, Sanubar Tursun and Friends

Two revered virtuosos in Asian traditions come together for a recital exploring cultural links that go back more than 2,000 years. 

Wu Man is one of the world's foremost players of the pipa, a four-stringed Chinese lute, and has been widely praised for her highly colourful performances. Sanubar Tursun is a symbol of Uyghur traditions, matching athletic, highly ornamented vocals with delicate playing on the dutar, a Central Asian long-necked lute. They are joined by other Uyghur musicians for a recital of solos, duets and trios.
