Rain Drops

Raindrops is a free improvisation by Syrian oud master Issam Rafea and Chinese pipa master Gao Hong. All their music is recorded with no rehearsal, discussion or planning whatsoever, and done in a single take with no editing. They only perform live compositions that they improvise on-the-spot on stage or in the studio. In performances, they base some of their music on titles suggested by the audience. They use their hearts and musical talents to produce their special brand of music. Each concert is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
