PRESS
 

Min Xiao-Fen focuses on each note with the acuity of someone who loves to operate in the moment.

Jim Macnie - Jazziz

 

Her new album is one of the most astonishing displays of virtuosity on a plucked-string instrument that you’ll ever hear, guaranteed to give even the finest Western guitarist, lutenist, mandolinist or banjo player a lingering inferiority complex.

Clarke Bustard - Richmond Times-Dispatch

 

When she lets loose the martial wu-stylings integral to the instrument’s massive history, you can hear her aggressive, Warrior nature burst straight through to the surface with centuries of tradition in tow.

Mitch Myers - Alternative Press

 

Min Xiao-Fen is one of the leading virtuosi on the pipa... A beautiful record.

Andy Hamilton - The Wire Magazine

 

She’s recorded for Zorn, dueted with Bailey, and nudged Randy Weston’ Brooklyn toward Beijing. But given the evidence of Spring, River, Flower, Moon, Night, it’s alone that her pipa is the most engaging.
