Have you ever heard someone play the pipa before? Neither had I, until I had the pleasure of meeting Leah Ou of O’s Pipa. Hailing from Chengdu, China, Leah is a classically trained pipa teacher and performer, and she’s come to Rochester to put a new spin on traditional Chinese music. Using techniques she’s worked on since she was 6 years old, she both performs classical Chinese music as well as her own compositions taking inspiration from American rock and folk genres.
