Mei Han and Red Chamber
Classical & Contemporary Chinese Music (ARC Music)
On her first international release, Mei Han, a maestro of the guzheng (a 21-string Chinese zither) who now lives in the US, innovatively mixes Chinese melodies with arrangements of folk tunes from as far apart as Bulgaria and Borneo and her own compositions, backed by an exceptional ensemble of traditional plucked-string lutes. A Top of the World in #123.
