Our home is filled with the fragrance of Chinese cooking. Members of Shanren, their translator and road manager are cooking a meal, a break from their performing for area schools and the night before their concert in Orange City.
Shanren are from southwest China, from ethnic minority groups of the mountains of Yunnan and Guizhou provinces. Their music fuses the sounds of those peoples with other, more modern music forms.

It’s a delight having them in our community. Thanks to Arts Midwest and the Orange City Arts Council for bringing them here.
