World music sensation Free Planet Radio, is back from a thirty day, twenty city whirlwind tour of China!
We don’t know what stirred things up over there more: Typhoon Megi, or this talented trio! Even though they were unknown to the Chinese public, every one of the concerts sold 300-600 tickets, and generated great enthusiasm. And of course it was FPR’s ability to engage with their audiences, share their eclectic music and respond to a new cultural experience that created a new fan base on the other side of the planet! Join us for an exciting multi-cultural concert, a world music tapestry of some of the new pieces written especially for the China Tour
blended with old favorites including instrumentals and original singer-songwriter
