Japanese traditional music

At the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, they have a very strong department for traditional Chinese music and the professor of the Guqin instrument, master Dai Xiaolian invited a duo from Japan where there is a small minority still preserving the type of music that came from China to Japan around 12th century AD in its original form and style, and which has been non existent in China for centuries. This was the very first time in China this music was presented publicly and a beginning of a cooperation between the musicians.
