The program explores the power of this combination to enchant, dazzle, and evoke dreamy soundscapes, as well as pursuing Tangram's mission to deconstruct imagined boundaries between Chinese and Western music and performers.
Tangram is a London-based music collective growing transnational community by creatively celebrating Chinese cultures. Made up of researchers, composers and performers of Chinese and western instruments, the group launched in 2019 as recipients of the Chinese Arts Now Artist Development Bursary and winners of Nonclassical's Battle of the Bands. They have worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, Silk Road Ensemble, New Earth Theatre, and are currently Associate Ensemble at SOAS University of London. Most recently, they have been announced as recipients of Jerwood Arts' inaugural Live Work Fund and Genesis Foundation's Kickstarter Fund.

Just economics and politics? Think again.
