I wrote about a visit by a renowned pipa player:
Renowned musician Wu Man, virtuoso of the pipa, will be visiting Utah on Thursday as part of the "BRAVO! Professional Performing Arts" series at Brigham Young University.
“It’s not a familiar instrument at all,” Man said in a phone interview Monday. “I think for most people in North America or Europe, at least 98 percent of the audience will have never heard of (the pipa). … Of course, if I go into China or Hong Kong or somewhere with a Chinese community, probably 99 percent would know about it.”
