She used 5 kinds of Huqin to express works of different styles, which was rare before this time.

Looking at the artistic journey she has gone through for more than ten years, with the continuous pursuit of folk music art, she has a deeper understanding and understanding of music works, and has a deeper artistic connotation, which can be seen in her performance style. Almost every time she plays, she always walks along the front of the stage from the right side of the stage, with her head lowered slightly, with one hand playing the piano and one hand holding up her skirt, looking graceful. She sits calmly, without publicity, and sits naturally; when she enters the performance state, she carves more with her deep understanding of the music. It can be seen that she understands the music so thoroughly and ponders it so delicately, but everything is different. It is so commonplace, natural and simple.

For more than ten years, she has cooperated with many famous orchestras and conductors at home and abroad, and has successfully held a series of Huqin solo and concerto concerts. He has recorded a large number of music pieces and various special programs of solo recitals and many other media at home and abroad, and also recorded Huqin music for many movies and TV series.

Talking about her own road to fame, Jiang Kemei is very indifferent: "As an artist, it is necessary to endure loneliness, and it is fundamental to cultivate one's own talents." The films "No One Can Be Missed" and "My Father and Mother" directed by Zhang Yimou "The soundtrack, in Jiang Kemei's view, this is just pure music creation, she doesn't care who the director is. I only met Zhang Yimou once in the recording studio. In Jiang Kemei's eyes, Director Zhang is serious and strict, and he is very serious about art.
