Pulling strings of Chinese cultural music tradition

Xu Bing, born in 1991, is a villager in Xuchang Village of Lankao County, Henan Province. Fascinated by traditional Chinese culture and guqin, a seven-string traditional Chinese instrument, Xu returned to his hometown after graduating from his college and started to learn the making and performing of guqin in Xuchang Village, which is famous for its folk instrument culture.

In order to learn the skill of making guqin, a complicated procedure which usually requires nearly two years to prepare, Xu went to Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Guangzhou to study and has formed distinctive styles, which brings him many orders from guqin teachers.

In recent years, Xu has set up a guqin studio and given lectures for guqin lovers for free across the country, in an aim to promote the culture of guqin.
