after a short time of opening, the guitar salon in the Xiangyang Road already started to become wellknown in the Shanghai guitar scene. The activities and jam sessions becomes more and more. At June the 20th the founder of the guitar salon He Shun Hua, who is one of the best guitar players in Shanghai and his German friend Julia the guitarist of Guitarshanghai made a performance in the Salon. The audience was exquisit, most of them were guitar players, too. It was a nice evening with a very interesting programm:
The first piece was a jiddish song named Tumbalalaika followed by some guitar duetts from Hans Bruederli. Then He Shun Hua welcomed the guests with a very special piece “the last Cafe” and then Julia made a Solo performance which included pieces from J.S.Bach, Roland Dyens, Dole Dyke and Giuseppe Torrisi. The last piece of the evening was a guitar duett again: the “Toccata for a wild old woman” from the German composer Peter Horton. The audience thanked with friendly applause and then after a short break the jam session started. Everybody of the audience who wants to play was allowed to play and this was a very nice idea which should be repeated as often as possible!
