“GREAT WALL OF CHINA”
The Great Wall of China breaks into new territory both musically and culturally.
In 1977, as China emerged from the Cultural Revolution, Canadian Brass arrived in Beijing for a concert tour that was part of a cultural exchange.
They were the first Western musicians to visit the country since Western music & art were banned in May 1966. The experience was the inspiration for this album that features the world famous ensemble performing arrangements of some of China s most popular songs.
