Arts Midwest World Fest Featuring Manhu – Saturday, September 30th 7:30-9p.
Manhu, a musical ensemble from China, will visit Corydon as part of Arts
Midwest World Fest. Hailing from the Stone Forest of Yunnan Province in southwestern China,
Manhu brings to life the traditions of the Yi people, an ethnic minority group with a rich musical
history. Playing the hulusheng, a mouth organ made from dried gourds, and even an ordinary leaf
used as a reed, Manhu shares instruments and songs that are well-known in their homeland but rarely
seen on an international stage. The ensemble has performed throughout China, but this is their first
tour to the United States. Experience this exciting American debut and connect to an age-old culture
made modern: Manhu will perform a public concert at Corydon Central High School on Saturday,
September 30 at 7:30 pm.
