British Chinese composer’s innovative album featuring digital erhu

Celebrate Chinese New Year with British Chinese composer Andy Leung as he releases innovative album featuring digital erhu

Music composer and producer Andy Leung set to launch his debut electronic album ‘New Cola’ on the 13th Feb 2016. The event will take places at the China Exchange venue in the heart of London’s Chinatown during the festive Chinese New Year period.

Featuring internationally renowned erhu player Wan Pin Chu, whose virtuosic performance impressed by President of China Xi Jinping and Prince William Duke of Cambridge alike.

Developed as part of the project, Chu will be performing on the world’s first digital erhu, allowing him to create sounds and effects that was previously impossible, whilst Leung also performs using an innovative 5-dimensional keyboard.

Leung stated, “Since the success of the EP last year, we are delighted to announced this album. This is a best of both world project – we’ve combined our passion for electronic music with a Chinese music. We both love new music, new technologies, and we believe this is a truly unique collection of music.”

As part of the album tour campaign, the duo will also perform at Trafalgar Square on the 14th Feb for the Chinese New Year Celebration in London.

Chu also added, “this is a forward thinking and innovative project, as an erhu player, this approach has totally transformed a traditional instrument into a cutting edge new instrument. I am sure this will inspire a new generation of erhu repertoire.”
