Please join us in the David Loughridge Learning Center for an evening of music that transcends space-time performed by Shuangyi Li. She will also share stories and engage in a question and answer session.
Shuangyi Li is a classical Chinese musician and photographer. Her unique and unlikely journey transported her from southwest China to New Mexico. She will be performing several Classical Chinese pieces, some inspired by Chinese deserts, with which she finds resonance in New Mexico landscapes. Shuangyi finds much refuge in her music. “It’s hard being a foreigner. I’m never quite Chinese enough nor American enough, but when I am playing, it does not matter who I am or what time I’m in. My instrument, GuZheng, is one of the oldest instruments created by man, it is out of space and out of time, like me.”
