Thai Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol Played Gu Zheng for Hangzhou Audience 2019-09-19

On November 17th, in the 6th "Thailand and China: Two Lands, One Heart" concert, Thai Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol personally performed Gu Zheng (an ancient Chinese musical instrument) for Hangzhou audience in Hangzhou Grand Theater.



Wearing an elegant blue dress and long hair over her shoulder, Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol was just like a Chinese beauty walking out of an ancient painting. During the concert, Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol played nine pieces of music all together, including some of the well-known traditional Chinese music like Full Moon, Spring River in the Moonlight and some Thai music. In addition, the Thai Art Troupe also performed Thai-style dancing.



Used to be a chemist, Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol fell in love with Gu Zheng during her trip in Guilin, Guangxi Province. That was the first time she has heard the beautiful music played by Gu Zheng. Since then, she has been learning to play Gu Zheng under the instruction of a Chinese musician-Chang Jing. In 2001, she initiated the first “Thailand and China: Two Lands, One Heart” concert which has made a great contribution to the cultural exchange between Thailand and China.
