About the Sunflower Percussion Band：
Sunflowers are known for their connotations of youthful energy and, with their collection of seeds, are sometimes used as a metaphor for a school. Taking their name from the famous flower, the Sunflower Percussion Band hopes to adapt the metaphor of the sunflower to their music. Just as the sunflower is a unified collection of seeds, so does the Sunflower Percussion Band form a complete structure that can provide vivid images of the same caliber as the sunflower.
The Sunflower Percussion Band originates from the Yunnan University of Art Department of Music. The members formed the group as students, but now hold official posts at the university. In the course of their studies, they had contact with a wide range of countries and musical styles, and their repertoire spans from traditional Chinese works to contemporary compositions. In December 2005 the group organized musical development conference at the Yunnan University of Music which was well received by critics. Shortly thereafter, the Sunflower Percussions Band became active members of the world music scene. In addition to their adaptations, they also write many original works. Their goal is to explore many musical styles and let audiences everywhere sample the varieties of percussion music.
