A Moving Sound
Part of Foxtel Festival Hub series.Fusing traditional Taiwanese and Chinese influences with a global sensibility, award winning ensemble A Moving Sound have built a worldwide following through their joyous mix of music, dance and intoxicating call and response.
Bringing together the distinctive timbres of the erhu (Chinese fiddle) and zhong ruan (lute), along with bass, drums and the transcendent vocals of Mia Hsieh, A Moving Sound have devised a unique and compelling style that is all their own – a pan-Asian whirlwind that veers between the meditative and the exuberant with irrepressible spirit.
It has been three years since the group released their self-titled album internationally through Motema in New York attracting attention worldwide for opening a door to unexplored territory with music that is both ethnic and intensely passionate and creative.
2014 will see them set out on their largest international tour to date with 23 shows across three continents including Slovakia, Czech Republic, Germany, Switzerland, New Zealand and one very special Australian date as part of the 2014 Melbourne Festival program.
