Chinese concert in Iðnó on 10 May

The Northern Lights Confucius Institute presents, in partnership with the Icelandic Chinese Cultural Society and the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages, the Sound of the Soul, a Chinese concert that will be held in Iðnó on Sunday night the 10th of May from 8-10 p.m. Entrance is free of charge and everyone is welcome.



The music will be performed by Chinese musicians playing the ancient stringed instrument 'Qin' and the Chinese bamboo flute 'Xiao'. Cecilia Lindqvist, a writer and sinologist, will be in the role of a storyteller which brings the audience into this exotic and fascinating musical world, sharing her knowledge of the composers and their music. She learned to play the 'Qin' herself during her studies at Peking University in 1961 and later received the Swedish Literature award, August-priset, for her book about it published in 2006.
