We have been working with Chinese musician Song Yuzhe and his band Dawanggang, developing music for a new contemporary Chinese opera.

A magical mix of folklore and contemporary Chinese culture, the story follows people, animals and gods in their travels through the Himalayan valleys.

A small group of Tinderbox members will be performing a selection of pieces from this new opera as part of the Journey of a Thousand Wings concert on 24th Aug.

Come along and experience a totally unique style of music.
