Clockshop presents its second year of Hear Sunday, a creative music program curated in collaboration with Yvette Holzwarth. Monthly concerts feature diverse musical styles performed in an intimate setting. Beer and wine are available for purchase.

This month, MA joins us at Clockshop for a performance featuring new music made for ancient instruments.

MA is a duo whose rich and emotive music is centered upon two asian instruments: the Chinese pipa and the Japanese koto. Jie Ma and Kozue Matsumoto, originally from China and Japan, draw upon the traditional musical influences of their respective motherlands alongside decades of performance in North America and Europe. These diverse points of reference converge to form MA’s unique sound, which floats between the ancient and the modern. Taking inspiration from early training that blended traditional Asian composition with Western ideas, MA’s musical spectrum is constantly developing.
