Silk (si) and Bamboo (zhu) are the two of the eight ancient categories of Chinese musical instruments, classified according to what they were made of: silk for strings and bamboo for flutes, hence string and wind music. The Silk and Bamboo (sizhu) Ensemble, a renowned Chinese music group based in the UK, features four leading performers on erhu and gaohu fiddles, pipa lute, guqin and guzheng zithers and dizi and hulusi flutes. The ensemble plays both traditional regional, and contemporary music inspired by the past.
