About Lucy Luan:
Lucy Luan is a radio host at China Radio International by day and a musician by night. She's been playing traditional Chinese music on the zither since she was four year old, but only truly fell in love with her instrument in college. While studying for her master's degree in Arizona, she brought Chinese music to her classmates and picked up the art of improvisation. Now, she plays the zither both solo and with a band, mixing Western and Chinese elements, as well as written and improvised material. Before her current role hosting the radio program, Lady Lady, Lucy used to host a radio program with Loreli's Amy, called EZ Cafe. Lucy shares both a live song and new professional recording.
