In this episode of "Discover Chinese Art @CNODDT", Andrew will follow percussionist Tong Shengyuan to take on the "bangu", a small frame drum typically used in Chinese operas.

In a piece with gongs and drums, the bangu must not only perform on its own but also guide the beat of other instruments.

How does the bangu differ from other drums? How would the tones of the delicate instrument be influenced by the striking position and the performer's posture? Will Andrew be able to complete the challenge? Watch to find out.

The short-video series, "Discover Chinese art @CNODDT", with seven episodes in total, is co-produced by the China National Opera and Dance Drama Theater and China Daily Website. The series will be uploaded online on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Let's embrace Chinese culture this summer and get immersed in the richness of traditional Chinese music and dance!
