RAGGED SILK 織音
Founded in New York, RAGGED SILK 織音 is a cross-cultural music collective that melds Eastern ancient melodies and lyrical sensibilities with Western electronic and popular music to form an original hybrid, consisting of vocal, guitar, pipa, bamboo flute, world music percussion, and DJ. Featuring music by songwriter Juliane Jones performed with acclaimed US and Chinese artists including pipa virtuoso Zhou Yi and zhongruan virtuoso Yueqin Eugenie Chen, this group aims to promote cross-cultural dialogue, friendship, and mutual understanding.
Ragged Silk’s live show curates genres of Chinese music including kung fu, guqin song, Buddhist chant, and kun opera presented in a popular music context. As Ragged Silk pushes the boundaries of performance by blending languages, timbres, and concepts, they aim to highlight the fluidity between the traditional and the modern.
In 2015, this cutting edge group was invited by Hollywood music producer Rickey Minor to work with R&B/Soul superstar Rihanna for the 2015 Vogue Met Gala. Other standout performances and collaborations include Joe’s Pub NYC, Sync Summit Los Angeles, NYC, and London, the Mercedes-Benz Auto Show in Xi’an, China, BalletX, and Yin Yue Dance Company.
