Mimi Jong plays the erhu, an ancient Chinese instrument. Jeff Berman and Sue Powers are steeped in the traditional music of Appalachia. In Pittsburgh they found common ground for two very different musical traditions and formed the group AppalAsia.
They visited the WDUQ studios recently to play some of their music and tell the story of how they got together. Listen to that story here.
Watch the first part of a video of AppalAsia at the WDUQ studios posted by Victor Beltran.
