Biography

To seek the highest common denominator; this is the philosophy of Yom and Wang Li: high energy, elegant virtuosity, a hunger for spirituality and mysticism.
One is from China, an autodidactic jews harp player who performs his art as a solo musician. The other, born and raised in Paris, learnt to play clarinet at the conservatory and performs in several eastern Jewish music bands.
Although both originate from an Orient, the distance between one another was still significant, which they overcame through a long process of stammering, rumbling and onomatopoeias. At the end of this silent transformation (to quote Franois Jullien), Yom and Wang Li created their own musical vocabulary: A new language, neither Judeo - Chinese nor China - Judaic, but firmly traditional, definitely contemporary and violently respectful.
