Performing selections from her 2005 album, Wu Man and Friends,Wu Man pays homage to the plucked instrument and explores the dichotomy of the familiar and the foreign with musicians from Uganda and the southern Appalachian Mountains of the United States.Wu Man pairs the pipa, a lute-like instrument with a history of more than 2,000 years, with other plucked instruments from across the world to find the similarities and the differences between styles, traditions and locations.She is joined by:– James Makubuya playing the sharp tonality of the Ugandan Endongo and Adungu– Lee Knight playing the quick twang of the North American banjo.Adult$24/$18Child/KU Student$12/$9
