The Chinese Purple Phoenix Girl Band is a highly acclaimed all-women orchestra established in 2005, where most of them graduated from prestigious schools such as China Academy of Music .
One distinctive feature of Purple Phoenix is the instruments played by the musicians. Apart from the familiar traditional instruments like Erhu, Guzheng, Pipa, Suona and Chinese flute, the audience will get to hear for the first time, sounds made by rare Chinese instruments such as the Juqin (锯琴) – a Chinese musical saw, and the Zhuihu (坠胡), which can mimic the voice of a Peking opera singer. The audience will also be treated to the sweet and clear timbre made by the newly developed Crystal Erhu (水晶二胡), a beautiful erhu made of crystals.
The Purple Phoenix Ladies´ Ensemble is one of the most sought after Chinese women orchestras in China today.
