Full Frame Close Up: Cross-Cultural Harmony

Full Frame

This Full Frame Close Up is the story of an American woman mesmerized by Chinese culture, who discovered her passion for an ancient instrument made popular in America, and a Chinese woman, diligently playing an ancient Chinese instrument, who discovered her voice in America. This is the story of Abigail Washburn and Wu Fei.

Together, they are The Ripple Effect — a music duo fusing the music of East and West. Music has a long history of bringing people from different cultures together; in this Close Up, we meet two women who merged their creative pursuits with the hope of creating a ripple effect around the world.
