Originated in Qin Dynasty of the Warring States Period (476 BC-221 BC) in China, Zheng, a Chinese zither, also flourishes in several other traditional cultures in East Asian, each imbued with its own cultural identity and artistic merits. These include the Japanese Koto, Korean Gayageum and Mongolian Yatga, among others.

To celebrate the opening of the 2020 Taipei Traditional Arts Festival, Summit of Zithers from East Asia assembles preeminent virtuosi from the region: YOSHIMURA Nanae (Koto), YI Ji-young (Gayageum), Baasankhuu Chinbat (Yatga), and FAN Wei-Tsu (Zheng) to perform concerted works with TCO led by Maestro Qu Chunquan.
