Ma Xiaohui and Burnett Thompson began their collaboration in 1999, hosted by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. After a long hiatus, they returned to the Kennedy Center in 2006, followed by dozens of concerts and lectures in Vancouver, B.C., Washington, DC, New York City, Shanghai, and Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province. On Jan. 12, 2007 they appeared live on China Television on a worldwide broadcast. The Shanghai Oriental Arts Center presented two concerts by the duo in January of 2008. Their repertoire includes classical and traditional Chinese music, European classics, jazz and tango. They bring a truly original perspective to a broad view of music today.
