This erhu specialist is working to make Chinese music more visible in Philly

Qin moved to Philadelphia in 2005 from a province in China called Guangxi. She had visited the United States for the first time the year before, when she spent six months traveling around the country, performing and teaching classes. Qin said immigrating to the United States has given her more chances to collaborate, and she’s branched out from traditional Chinese music to other styles, including Italian and Irish — all on the erhu. She praised the artistry level of the other music groups here, saying that it’s on a different level from music groups in China. (During the Cultural Revolution, Mao Zedong censored all forms of art, including music, leading to a loss of talent.)
