How Buddhism connects Chinese culture, history and religion is well recognized. In comparison, how music connects two different civilizations is much less discussed; nevertheless, Chinese music history and theory readily acknowledge Indian influences. CIUM hosts a one-day symposium on historical and contemporary musical exchanges between China and India, featuring leading scholars and performers of the fields, by which we hope to stimulate such research on cultural and musical connections between China and India. To highlight musical contacts and expressions between the two civilizations, the symposium will conclude with a unique performance of traditional and fusion Chinese and Indian music. The performance will be held at Stamps Auditorium at 8 pm.
