A food safety factory shutdown has Americans hunting for baby formula. Readying themselves for a covid-19 lockdown, Chinese in Beijing emptied store shelves. Emerging from lockdown, some in Shanghai are visiting well-provisioned markets. U.S.-China agricultural trade is booming, but many are still being left hungry. Food security, sustainability and safety remain issues.
Chu-Han Contention: Traditional Pipa Music
The Bowers Museum presents an afternoon of pipa music.
Wan Yeung (Ngai Wan Yeung), from Hong Kong, currently a music student at UCI, and his pipa master Wu Junsheung from Beijing, perform traditional Chinese music that will take you on a journey back to Ancient China. Among several pieces that they will present are Shi Mian Mai Fu (Ambush from all Sides) and Bawang Xie Jia (the Unarming Conqueror), two prominent pieces of pipa music that depict the winning and losing sides of the war between Chu and Han forces, a contention that happened between Qin and Western Han Dynasty. Visual images on the screen will augment the performance.
Following the performance, please join us for Happy Hour with the musicians in Tangata.
