Wu Na & Esther Venrooy

After Wu is an absolute master on the Guqin, a 3000-year-old table with 7 harp strings. And you may take it literally: she was the first person to graduate from the Conservatory of Beijing as a master on the Guqin. Her aim is to give the traditional instrument a platform in contemporary music and she does this by performing with Chinese rock stars, but also examines the avant-garde and combines Western influences with traditional sounds. Venrooy Esther from Holland is a composer, musician, researcher and teacher who lives and works in Ghent. She improvises and experiments with ethnic instruments and electronics. After previously touring with Wu Na in China, the two meet again in Vooruit.
