BETHNAL Green's Rich Mix will be journeying to the east with performances from China this weekend.

British-born Chinese violinists and composers, CHi2 will celebrate China's history and culture in Monkey King a modern interpretation of a Beijing Opera, showing at Rich Mix tomorrow.

Liz and Sarah Liew of CHi2, have previously toured and recorded with Moby, Lamb, Boy George, Goldfrapp, Nelly Furtado, Gnarls Barkley, the KLF and the Orb.

In Monkey King they have created an edgy musical cocktail of traditional and modern sounds, fusing together acoustic and electric instruments, digital media and one of the world's most ancient art forms with a unique contemporary twist, to create a show that bursts with colour and vibrancy.

Monkey King is a modern interpretation of the classic Chinese legend Monkey, Journey to the West which was brought to the stage to great acclaim by Blur's Damon Albarn last year.

Monkey King is on at Rich Mix in Bethnal Green Road at 8pm tonight.

Tickets cost £15 on the door or £12 in advance from 020 7613 7498 or www.richmix.org.uk/bookings
