Dong Xi with Special Guest Shu-Chen Cuff

Dong Xi, the winner of Best World Music Artist /Group of WAMMIE (2020) and nominator of Outstanding Sound Design of Helen Hayes Award (2020), is honored to bring the audience to a new sound world with their bi-lingual music. The name Dong Xi can be translated in “East and West”. It is a collaboration between world percussionist Tom Teasley and Yang Qin (Chinese dulcimer) virtuoso Chao Tian. Their sound is a merging of world rhythms with the elegance of Chinese folk and classical music. Tom Teasley combines global percussions from Africa, India, Middle-East, Brazil, and Cuba with American jazz. Chao Tian performs with techniques that combines her traditional Chinese music background with reminiscent of the Persian Santoor, American dulcimer, and even slide guitar. Their music is completely improvised, thus creating a dialog between east and west using music to express what words cannot express. They are joined by Shu-Chen Cuff, Founder of the critically acclaimed Gin Dance Company. Each of GDC’s works reflects Shu-Chen’s rich Asian Dance heritage and Eastern philosophy blended with Western fluidity of movement and culture that touch the soul through visuals arts and movement.Outdoors in Cherry Hill Park behind the Falls Church Community Center.
