The gu zheng is a traditional Chinese plucked, half-tube zither instrument with 21 metal strings and movable bridge with a large, resonant cavity made from wood. Gu zheng sounds very melodious, as it is rich in playing techniques. Playing the gu zheng creates sounds that can evoke the sense of a cascading waterfall, thunder, horses' hooves or the scenic countryside.
Player Ms Lucy Wang started her music training from a very young age. She is a committee member of the Institute of Musicology in Gu Zheng and has been consistently invited to perform in solo concerts and other performances, including her most recent appearance in Korea. Lucy is renowned for her stylish playing with elegance and is celebrated for her vibrant tone.
