More this week from Loreli's "business trip" to Chengdu. In addition to some very experienced professional musicians, like Wu Zhuoling, at Machu Picchu bar's open mic night, we also ran into some students. Moran Rozenszajn and Dror Ne'eman are both from Israel, study Chinese in Chengdu, and try to get their hands on any Chinese instrument they can find.

About Moran Rozenszajn:
The moment Moran was born he's life changed forever and only 14 years later, for the first time he touched a guitar and felt the smooth wood across he's 14 years old guitar virgin fingers, and immediately became a music addict. After he successfuly played "Come as you are" by Nirvana 247 times he started learning classical music and wow, really enjoyed it. But he's poor teacher couldn't restraint him to stay in the aesthetics of the 17th century music, so Moran started playing middle eastren music, joined the army, adopted a badger and right after flew to the balkans. Shocked to he's foundation to see the deep connection between Gypsy balkan music, flamenco and middle eastren music, Moran decided to see what other connection he could find along the silk road and flew to China,The first (last) stop. Now Moran studies the erhu and the Chinese language in Chengdu and writing stupid biographies about himself, he sees it as a form of conceptual art. Positive energy
