"Min has taken her ancient Chinese string instrument into the future." The Village Voice

Pipa player, vocalist and composer Min Xiao-Fen is a new music pioneer who grew up during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. A virtuoso with a long list of uptown and downtown credits, Min joins forces with Okkyung Lee and Satoshi Tekeishi, two great musicians, in a compelling performance of original work." Return of the Dragon", combines Min's music with her own Chinese calligraphy.

"In Chinese culture, calligraphy and music are considered among the highest forms of expression. This performance includes both. The writing that appears onstage represents different forms of the Chinese character for dragon chosen from different periods in ancient Chinese history. My music is inspired by the spirit, energy and fantasy of the dragon." - Min Xiao-Fen
