A MOVING SOUND-World Music from Taiwan

  • Date:2013-09-23

A Moving Sound (AMS), invited by Flushing Council on Culture and Arts, will present one performance on October 5th, 2013 in Flushing Town Hall. Please come to enjoy the concert and travel to the Far East and far beyond with the group

AMS brings the sounds of traditional Taiwanese, Chinese and neighboring Asian traditions into modern times with skillful compositions that open new passageways for east-west cultural dialogue. Accompanied by the sound of traditional instruments such as the Chinese erhu, zhong-ruan, and Chinese percussion, the sublime singer and dancer Mia Hsieh leads a powerful ensemble on ethereal journeys that are enchanting audiences and critics across five continents.

 Opening doors to the vibrant cultural crossroads of modern Taiwan, AMS has attracted international attention through their creative contemporary use of traditional instruments and vocal techniques. The group's fresh sound simultaneously draws on the powers of history and innovation to create a thoroughly unique presentation. Their holistic approach - which combines art, spirituality and history with an up-to-date sense of social awareness - is a sterling example of the creative process. AMS has been described by National Geographic World Music as "one of the most original outfits working in the world music arena today" and by BBC's The World as "truly creative music from Asia."
