The sound of China

The sound of erhu, the traditional Chinese musical instrument, is becoming better known globally thanks to the efforts of one college student.

Chen Yimiao, born in 2004, comes from a Beijing family steeped in musical tradition. Her grandfather Chen Yaoxing and father Chen Jun are both well-known erhu players. Unsurprisingly, as a child, the now 17-year-old developed a keen interest in music, and in the erhu in particular.
