Wu Man

“…the world’s finest player of the pipa…” — The New York Times

Called “the Jimi Hendrix of the pipa,” by NPR and “…the pre-eminent ambassador for traditional Chinese music in the U.S.” by the Wall Street Journal, Wu Man has long been recognized as the world’s finest player of this ancient Chinese lute-like instrument.

A founding member of the Silkroad Ensemble, along with Yo-Yo Ma, and a frequent collaborator of the Kronos Quartet, Wu Man graces the intimate setting of The Nimoy with a program that will foreground her astonishing talents and exceptional inventiveness ranging from contemporary to classical, earning her the deserved tribute by The Boston Globe, as being “one of the rare musicians who has changed the history of the instrument she plays.”
