Wang Li & Wu Wei
Wang Li, Jawharps and Calebash Flute
Wu Wei, Sheng
Wang Li and Wu Wei play the kouxian (Jew’s harp) and the sheng respectively. Put like that, it can sound like a fairly unlikely duo . . . Yet here we have an astonishing musical encounter between two immense artists of the oriental tradition, one living in Paris, the other in Berlin, who focus their skills on a different breath and time, on harmonics that grip the listener with telluric force. With its inspired use of the Chinese mouth organ and a multitude of instruments including the musicians’ own bodies, this is music that deserves to be experienced – the experience of a sound that is quite simply indescribable!
