Vancouver Chinese Instrumental Music Society and Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden Present Fiddles Around The World.
The bowed stringed instrument originated from India around 3000BC. From there, it spread out in all directions to China, Central Asia, Europe, Africa and the New World. Both the Chinese erhu and the western violin can trace their origin back to India.
On Oct 03, 2010, the Vancouver Chinese Instrumental Music Society and Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden presented Fiddles Around The World, a night time concert (at 7PM) that featured traditional and innovative music on bowed instruments. Chinese Erhu master Ji Rong Huang led a group of musicians from different disciplines including Tom Neville (Fiddle), Baljeet Singh (Dilruba), Amarjeet Singh (Indian Drum), Zhi Min Yu (Ruan – Chinese Guitar), Wei Li (Zheng – Chinese Zither) and Bruce Henczel (Percussion) to perform at the Dr. Sun Yet-Sen Classical garden. Renowned Canadian linguist Dr. Jan Walls emceed the event. It is Vancouver’s multicultural musical talents at work harmoniously to bring about a delightful concert of bowed and stringed musical instruments with music that is both ancient and modern at the same time.
