About this album

“Immeasurable Light”, a new recording by Wu Man that combines reconstructed ancient pipa melodies with her own contemporary compositions, will be released on the Traditional Crossroads label on September 15. The 14 tracks demonstrate the pipa’s extensive history, with melodies spanning from the 6th to 12th centuries to Buddhist mantras, centuries-old shadow puppetry scores and ancient dances. Wu Man was also inspired by her personal musical passions and partnerships, and she is joined by her regular collaborators, the Kronos Quartet, on two tracks.
