Parallel intersections (Josanne Francis and Chao Tian) at the Mansion

Josanne Francis and Chao Tian first met as members of Strathmore’s Artist in Residence Class of 2018, and we are still reeling from their debut duet. The tropical steelpan elegantly punctuated the bold, ethereal lilt of the Chinese dulcimer, creating an absolutely transcendent soundscape. Francis and Tian are masters of their instruments. Francis made history as the first classical steelpan soloist to perform a concerto at Carnegie Hall, and Tian has been presented with the Wen Hua award—the highest honor given to a Chinese musician. Get lost in a flurry of pansticks and mallets and witness a transglobal collaboration that’s out of this world.
