Twelve Girls Band: Live from Shanghai

2007 NR

China's Twelve Girls Band may take their format from the 13th century -- when 12 girls on stringed instruments entertained the emperor -- but their music is inspired by everything from classical to jazz, as you'll see from the concert captured here. Performing beneath Shanghai's Pearl Tower, the girls provide stunning renditions of music as diverse as Bach's Violin Concerto in A Minor and "Georgia on My Mind" on traditional Chinese instruments.
