4/2: Gyan Riley & Wu Fei

Nobody balances past and future better than past-feature Wu Fei. A guzheng is her weapon of choice, an ancient Chinese instrument that looks like the offspring of a harp and coffee table. The instrument dates back over two thousand years, but Wu Fei uses it as a way of looking to the future. While she’s an expert when it comes to ancient Chinese folk music, she plays an avant garde and futuristic style that we described as Chinese-Appalachian folk.

The folks at FMRL are hosting the show, which also includes classical guitarist Gyan Riley. The show is Monday at Bastion Nashville at 8:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
