Join us for the The Moon Represents My Heart concert series, a reflection of the current exhibition which focuses on the transformative power of music and identity. Tonight, we present a dreamy 1930's Shanghai Pop-Jazz trio inspired by Gary Lucas’ celebrated album The Edge of Heaven: Gary Lucas Plays Mid-Century Chinese Pop, which rose to #1 on the World Music Charts. This cool new trio play an intriguing fusion of Eastern and Western musical styles that mingles with new Mandarin versions of classics by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Jeff Buckley.

 

Grammy-nominated guitar legend Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley) has been called “one of the best and most original guitarists in America” by Rolling Stone.

 

Vocalist and erhu virtuoso Feifei Yang is a dual 2017 Global Music Award winner and was recently praised by Indie Nation as “an extremely talented pop star in the making."

 

Multi-instrumentalist Jason Candler has worked closely with Gary Lucas for years and is also music director of the Hungry March Band.
