#An Unconventional Classical Trio

3PEOPLEMUSIC, a creative trio of three traditional Chinese instrument musicians – guzheng artist KUO Jing-mu, zhongruan player PAN I-tung, and dizi/xiao performer JEN Chung – is a unique chamber music ensemble that combines expertise in the classical Chinese music with contemporary perspectives. Since its founding in 2013, 3PEOPLEMUSIC has been striving for a brighter future for the development of traditional Chinese music instruments in Taiwan’s current music scene, focusing on areas including the performance type, the composing style and the group’s own image and branding.


With their outstanding performing skills, richly diverse and refined notes, and a repertoire encompassing a variety of styles and genres, the trio freely roams from improvisation to cross-genre performances, and from contemporary works to world music. Their performances transcend the gaps of generations and the barriers of borders in its demonstration of the bountiful versatility of traditional music and instruments.
