After three years of the epidemic, with the resumption of air routes, musicians around the world have launched performances. On the afternoon of August 16, local time in Sydney, Australia, Jin Ye, a famous young Chinese pipa player, was invited by the University of Sydney, a world-renowned top university, to celebrate the "100th anniversary of international students and the University of Sydney" and presented his unique style pipa works to thousands of Australian audiences. This is Jin Ye's first public performance in Australia, including "Ambush on All Sides", "Spring Flowers and Moonlight Night", some popular songs, and Jin Ye's original songs "Fusion", "Infinity", etc. Jin Ye's wonderful performance received warm applause from the audience. The purpose of this performance is to popularize Chinese traditional instrumental music and culture to young Australian audiences and to cultivate their appreciation of pipa music works.
Musician Jin Ye has long been known by Chinese and American audiences for her "continuous innovation and breaking through tradition". She is committed to giving audiences around the world a new perspective on the traditional Chinese pipa, and breaking the stereotype of the Chinese pipa by playing modern pieces. Before 2023, Jin Ye used the Chinese pipa to connect American and Chinese culture. Now, she has once again become a cultural bridge between China and Australia.
"It is a great honor to be invited by the world-renowned University of Sydney and have the opportunity to present traditional Chinese music to the Sydney audience. This is my first time playing in the southern Hemisphere. The Australian audience is as welcoming and friendly as the American audience, and I can strongly feel their desire to explore and learn about Eastern instruments." Jin Ye said. "Every time I go to perform in a country or city, I have a different playing experience, and these valuable experiences bring inspiration and inspiration to my future works."
