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.
