The Wu-Force is excited to announce the release of their first, self-titled EP on January 27, 2017! The band is a self-described kung fu-Appalachian-indie-folk-rock trio of banjo, guzheng (Chinese zither) and keyboards. Inspired by Chinese opera, garage rock, old Shanghai jazz and Appalachian hymns, these very different musicians from very different backgrounds are united by a shared vision of a world, where differences unite instead of divide.
Composed of Abigail Washburn, Kai Welch + Wu Fei, the EP (produced by Welch) tells stories of the struggle to connect in the face of divisive forces, with music they hope can speak to people of any walk of life, in any culture around the world.
For a sneak-peak, tune in tonight to the Paul Burch Show's 8 PM block on WXNA to listen to their new single 'Paper Lanterns': http://www.wxnafm.org/newstoo/
