New York City Scenario 6: The Sound in the Subway
What is that sound? Descending into the Grand Street subway station in Chinatown in New York one cold day in March 2013, we hear a flute and something else. What is it? It is Zong Li Lu, busking as the trains arrive, playing a traditional Chinese monochord or duxian paoqin in Chinese. And a flute. Accompanying himself from a boombox playing some of his CDs. An iPhone video tribute to his duet between monochord, flute and subway train.
Just back from a short visit to the city, this is part of a series of ‘New York City Scenarios.’
