Dong Xi is a world music duo focusing on presenting a new experience collaboration with individual unique taste in a “controlled improvisation” setting.
Its name derives from the identities and the background of its composing musicians. Also, it represents an element of surprises from the Chinese idiom “feint to the east but attack in the west”. This is one of their signatures in their music and represents their unique and interesting ways to create music dialogue for their music. They use the subtleties of Chinese dulcimer to blend seamlessly with the world music percussion to create an elaborate and amazing duo improvisation.
