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.

Hailing from China's Shanxi province, this world-reknowned company of 28 drummers, percussionists and musicians astounds audiences with an ultra-sensory entertainment experience. In Chinese, "jigu" means to "beat or touch the drum," and performances are deeply rooted in folk origins, which are blended with many modern musical elements.
It's a fascinating, totally new show concept. You'll not only see and hear the action; you'll actually feel the intense sound!
