Huqin

Greetings Friends, I know it’s been awhile…life happens! 😀

Continuing with some shots from Seattle, this is an image of a street performer playing what I believe belongs to the Huqin family, a traditional bowed stringed instrument. To get even a little more precise, I believe it to be a Erhu which is also know in the Western World as a “Chinese Violin”. Either way, I loved the sound it made and was captivated by the songs he played. I actually stayed there for sometime totally immersed in the moment, it was really magical! Enjoy…

  1. Interesting instrument!
    Not only is his expression intriguing, but the perceptions of his expression that other people are sharing.
    Well done!
