Sound engineer Jeremy Ansell with pipa, Wu Man, interviewer Trevor Reekie in the Radio NZ studios.

The pipa is a four-stringed Chinese lute that dates back two thousand years and echoes ancient Chinese musical traditions.

Wu Man is a virtuoso pipa player who preserves those traditions, as well as exploring multi-cultural collaborations that are bringing the pipa to a new global audience. Trevor Reekie invited Wu Man into the Radio New Zealand studio to share her passion for the pipa.

The pieces are: Intro (Wu Man), Flute and drum music at Sunset (Trad), White Snow in Spring (trad), Night Thoughts (Wu Man).
