We also invite the visitors to the third concert of the Chinese Lanterns Festival, during which songs deriving from popular Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and Taiwanese music will be played. They are characterized by a free, improvised performance combining the genres of folk and entertainment music. Among others, we will hear songs by Teresa Teng – a star of Chinese pop music, as well as popular Indian musical themes played on the sitar and Indian bansuri flutes, with an electric arrangement.
The following artists will perform:
Lucjan Wesołowski – sitar, bansuri, oud, darbuka;
Anna Krysztofiak – guzheng, erhu, zhonghu, hulusi, shamisen.
During the concert, the audience will become acquainted with the work of old stars of Hong Kong, Taipei, and Shanghai.
