The konghou is an ancient Chinese instrument that was modernized and reinvented, combining elements of Chinese traditional instruments with the design and features of a western harp. With the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council, harpist Jia Jia Yong has become one of only a handful of modern konghou players in North America. Join Jia Jia as she shares her exploration of Chinese music and culture through learning the modern konghou, including performances and demonstrations on her instrument.
