NACMS presents: "Listen to the Sound"

  • Dimenna Center Cary Hall 450 West 37th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)

The Belgium LUCA percussion ensemble is lead by percussionist and composer Chin Cheng Lin, with the creative thematic concert production, the ensemble will bring out and explore different style of music. Chien Chien Lu Quartet, created this year, the band gathers experienced musicians under the leadership of vibraphonist and composer Chien Chien Lu, as Chien Chien tells it “the music of the concert is the result of the unique experience of merging two cultures, Taiwanese and American, which sometimes complement and sometimes contradict each other, there is courage, insanity and passion combined Taiwanese lyricism and nostalgia. There is chaos and peace, questions and statements, angel and demon, powerful and delicate, and most of all, the in-depth search for the bigger meaning and truth.
