Yazhi Guo and World Music
An amazing dialogue among suona, guanzi and pipe organ
Yazhi Guo was born in 1966 in Shanxi. He is an artist of the suona and various other wind instruments, is active in concert performances around the world, and is known in China as the 'greatest suona player'.
The 'moving reed' component of the suona, invented by Mr. Guo, received the Second-Tier Scientific Progress Award from the Chinese Minstry of Culture, and allowed the traditional suona to undergo a siginificant breakthrough in its abililties to alter modes and change sounds at any time during live performances.

A traveler, never forgetting his purpose, continues toward the distance. If he truly wishes to witness this distant land, the only way to do so is walk there. After climbing to a high point, the sound of his trumpet echoes across the mountains and waters, stretching toward the horizon. The traveler's gaze traces the face of the land. Autumn's bounty is soon to be harvested, that blissful time of year when the first frost still seems far away.
