To mark ChinaWeek 2019, The Huntington will present a special program featuring a trio of musicians performing traditional Chinese music in the Love for the Lotus Pavilion, one of the lakeside structures in the spectacular Garden of Flowing Fragrance, Liu Fang Yuan.
RADII presents: china.wav, an exciting new event series highlighting an alternative wavelength of Chinese underground culture you never knew existed. As part of the 2019 ChinaWeek program, RADII presents four live music performances bridging the US/China culture gap through music in distinct, exciting ways. china.wav will take over Silver Lake’s historic El Cid venue on Friday, May 3 with a multifaceted, genre-spanning image of the past, present and future of the Chinese music underground — essential listening for a sampling of the China that gets missed by the mainstream. It’s a crash course in how Western counterculture has influenced divergent forks of grassroots expression in China, and an object lesson in how we might better communicate across cultural lines through the shared language of music.
