“Among the accordionists…Vincent Tsai (Wei-Ching Tsai), a young Taiwanese accordion master. With his Maugien and in duet with Sylvia Hsu (Man-Hsuan Hsu) …devoted to traditional music from Taiwan.” – The Montagne, FR

The Kite Flying Band, which formed in 2014, with Sylvia Hsu Man-Hsuan on guzheng and Vincent Tsai on accordion. They combine Euro-style accordion and contemporary guzheng. The former, which came into use two centuries ago in Europe, and the latter, which hails from China’s Warring State period (about 2,500 years ago), have come together in a journey that crosses the bounds of space and time, their resonance creating something both free in style and deeply touching.


Sylvia’s first collaboration with Vincent was in producing and publicizing the guzheng album, Splendid Strings on the Move. While exploring the possibilities of what their music could do, they discovered an incredible, beautiful resonance and a singularly radiant soundscape that had the feeling of a forest at down. The guzheng produces a granular-like sensation, and with the rendered ambiance of the accordion, a three-dimensional milieu has taken shape. This discovery prompted them to start working together even more.


The two love exploring deep and trying gout new things, and within this mixed cultural context, they have come up with a common musical vocabulary. Through their skills and capacity to imitate and echo the timbre of each other’s instruments, they are pushing the limits of the accordion and guzheng. The band has performed and been highly praised by audiences at numerous music festivals around the globe. They look to continue encouraging all that is beautiful in the world through their soul-touching exploration and performances.
