Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Sept. 24: A performance of Chinese folk music

Visit to Indianapolis of Chinese group Qing Mei Jing Yue, one of the world’s great quartets playing in any genre

When: Saturday 24 September, 8:00 PM

Where: Butler University, Clowes Hall, 4602 Sunset Ave. Indianapolis

The group’s Qing Mei Jing Yue name comes from the four artists’ first names, sort of like if the group from Liverpool had called themselves “John Paul George Ringo.” Actually, the comparison with the Beatles is not heresy, this group is at the top of their genre. Their pipa player Yang Jing is considered one of the best in China’s very long history. Some examples of their haunting music:

Listen to Qing Mei Jing Yue – Water Silhouette
Listen to Qing Mei Jing Yue – The King of Xi Chu Dynasty
Listen to Qing Mei Jing Yue – Moon over the West River
