Chui Wan formed in 2010 and its members have always been central members of Beijing's dynamic experimental music scene. National Public Radio writes, “In Zhuangzi's Qi Wu Lun, the Daoist philosopher writes, 'When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein.' Beijing's Chui Wan takes its name from that text — and similarly breathes in every sound to exhale a dazzling collage.”
