Cloud River Mountain

Enter the world of the gods, spirits, and shamans of ancient Chinese myths and poetry in this evening-length work co-composed by Lao Luo and Bang on a Can Co-Artistic Directors Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe.

Your guide is the extraordinary Chinese vocalist Gong Linna, whose dynamic voice travels across vast terrains of sonic colors. Her adventurous artistic range that embraces Chinese folk, pop, and avant-garde art music has drawn comparisons to Björk. Singing in both Mandarin and English, she joins the Bang on a Can All-Stars for a thrilling cross-cultural voyage through dramatic musical landscapes, from groove-driven melodies and lyrical meditations to punk back beats and stratospheric vocalizations.
